Here Are Ohio State’s 74 Records The Buckeyes Broke Or Tied During Championship Season

The Ohio State Buckeyes didn’t just win the inaugural College Football Playoff national championship, they did it in record-breaking style.

On Thursday, Urban Meyer fired up Twitter to do a bit of warranted bragging about how impressive this past year was for Ohio State. Meyer shared a graphic for the 74 records the Buckeyes either broke or tied during 2014.

A total of 26 were team specific, while the remaining 48 were individual records. Whoever dove into the history books to determine these might need a raise.

Following is a complete list, courtesy of OhioStateBuckeyes.com.
