13 Game Regular Season Schedule[edit]

Why is it that OSU was able to schedule 13 regular season games during this season? College football teams in the last decade have only been able to schedule a maximum of 12 regular season games, with the only exception being if they travel to Hawaii. Then they are allowed to schedule a 13th game. Given this rule, I think it's fair to include the reason that rule didn't apply to this team in this particular year. Does anybody know the reason for this?Kp.murphy (talk) 15:36, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

I just read that there used to be a rule that if you played during week 1 of the NCAA Football schedule, it didn't count against your 12 game regular season total... I wonder if this was the reason.Kp.murphy (talk) 15:39, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

I believe that rule is correct and was exorcised by Ohio State in 2002. TPershiganv50 (talk) 21:35, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

I realized there were 5 Saturdays (that or the season started on Aug. 31st) in September, and playing in the first week wouldn't go against, TPershiganv50 (talk) 01:02, 17 April 2010 (UTC)

Image:Ohio State buckeyes logo.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.
