Ohio State Is On The Verge Of Getting Shutout For 1st Time Since 1993

The Buckeyes are scoreless against Clemson.

Through two and a half quarters, Urban Meyer's offense hasn't been able to do much of anything against the Tigers.

Ohio State trails, 17-0, and OSU's offense has totaled zero points and 103 total yards.

When was the last time a Buckeyes' team got shutout in a contest?

It's been since 1993, when Ohio State fell to Michigan, 28-0.

Here's what the Cleveland Plain Dealer wrote about that game.

Ohio State's players filed out of their locker room at Michigan Stadium awash in emotions they had routinely inflicted upon their opponents throughout a season gone suddenly and stunningly sour.

Frustration, disbelief and dismay -- strangers to the fifth-ranked Buckeyes all year -- this time rained down on OSU in the aftermath of a 28-0 beating as crushing as it was shocking.

Along with hopes for an unbeaten season and revenge for an 0-4-1 record against the Wolverines since 1988, Ohio State surrendered control of a chance for its first outright Big Ten championship and Rose Bowl berth in nine years.

It hasn't been a great night for Urban Meyer and Co.
