3. Texas A&M
The Ohio State football program has rarely played Texas A&M throughout its history. A&M was in the Big 12 for a long time before making the move to the SEC last decade. Yet of these three SEC teams, the Buckeyes have played the Aggies the most.
Ohio State is 4-0 against Texas A&M over the course of history. The first matchup was way back in 1963. The most recent matchup was in the 1999 Sugar Bowl. It was a consolation prize for the Buckeyes after the 1998 team, which was one of the best OSU teams ever, fell to Michigan State to keep them out of the National Championship Game.
The Buckeyes jumped out to a 21-7 lead in the first quarter and never looked back. They ended up beating the Aggies 24-14 in what would be John Cooper’s final bowl win as head coach of the Ohio State football program. He would be replaced by Jim Tressel two years later.
As far as future matchups between these two programs go, I’d expect to see them play relatively soon. With the Playoff expanding to 12 teams, Texas A&M finally has a shot to make it. Ohio State has been a regular participant in the CFP, but the Aggies have yet to make an appearance.
There are no regular season matchups scheduled between these two programs, but I could see them maybe doing that in the future. I think it would benefit both programs to have a home-and-home matchup between them.
That’s it! Those are the three SEC programs that the Buckeyes are undefeated against. I wish the list was longer than that though.
