The 25 Best CFB Teams of All-Time

24. 1968 Ohio State Buckeyes

Season Results: 10-0, Consensus National Champion

With Woody Hayes patrolling the sidelines and Jim Otis leading the charge on the field, the 1968 Ohio State Buckeyes were a scary group to face. After finishing the ’61 season ranked No. 2, Ohio State appeared to lose a bit of steam. Between 1962-67, the Buckeyes lost at least two games each year and never finished higher than No. 9 nationally. However, the ’68 Buckeyes were different. The team featured 11 All-Americans and six future first-round picks. Otis powered Ohio State’s ninth-ranked offense, finishing the season with 985 rushing yards and 17 TDs.

The Buckeyes began the year No. 11 overall, but quickly moved up to No. 2 after taking down No. 1 Purdue, 13-0, in their third game. Later on, the Buckeyes would upend No. 16 Michigan State (25-20) and No. 4 Michigan (50-14). To complete their perfect season and claim the National Championship, the Buckeyes outlasted No. 2 Southern Cal in the Rose Bowl, 27-16.
