Countdown to Kickoff: 39 Days


39.  Urban Meyer has 39 career Big 10 regular season victories, which is 4th best among active coaches.  All three coaches ahead of Meyer have at least 10 years experience in the Big 10 though, compared to Meyer’s five seasons as Ohio State.  His 7.8 conference wins per season is the most among active Big 10 coaches.  He’s topped the 8 win mark in four of his five seasons, which is as many as the other 13 coaches combined.  Despite the regular season dominance, Meyer has only made the Big 10 championship game twice, with a 1-1 record in those games.  Chances are Meyer will add at least a few more Big 10 Championship trophies to the trophy case before his time in Columbus is complete.  Right now the Buckeyes look like the favorite to win the conference this year, but we’ll have to wait until December 2nd to find out for sure.
