On this Day in 1966

Today is the 42nd anniversary of Ohio State's 1966 national championship. The Buckeyes are the last Big Ten team to win the College World Series.

The Buckeyes made three straight appearances in Omaha from 1965-67. They were the runnerup in 1965 after losing 2-1 to Arizona State in the championship game. The next year, Ohio State beat Oklahoma State, 8-2, to win the school's only national championship and one of six won by Big Ten teams during a 14-year span (1953-66).

1966 College World Series Results
Rosenblatt Stadium, Omaha, Neb.
  • Ohio State 4, Oklahoma State 2
  • Ohio State 6, Southern California 2
  • Ohio State 8, St. John's 7
  • Southern California 5, Ohio State 1
  • Ohio State 1, Southern California 0
  • Ohio State 8, Oklahoma State 2
I know I'm not alone when I say I would love to see the Buckeyes in Omaha in the very near future.

Go Bucks!
