The 1994 Ohio State Buckeyes football team represented the Ohio State University in the college football season of 1994–1995. The Buckeyes compiled a 9–4 record, including the 1995 Florida Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Florida, where they lost 24–17 to the Alabama Crimson Tide, a team one point away from playing in the national championship game. Despite being handed their third worst loss of all time by the Nittany Lions, this was considered a somewhat successful season overall.
