'Elite' spotlights 2002 Buckeyes football tonight
In only his second year, Jim Tressel took an unheralded Ohio State team from a 7-5 record the year prior and survived a number of close finishes to run the table in the Big Ten and take a perfect record into the Fiesta Bowl, where they faced the defending champion Miami Hurricanes. Tonight at 7 p.m. ET (and again at 10 p.m.), our one-hour TV show “Big Ten Elite” explores that team’s undefeated season.
Behind the heady play of quarterback Craig Krenzel, the two-way ability of Chris Gamble, and a tough, no-nonsense defense – the Buckeyes stunned Miami in overtime and captured the national championship. The show features interviews with Jim Tressel, Craig Krenzel and Chris Gamble, among others. OhioStateBuckeyes.com has a good archive from the 2002 season with game notes and stats from each game.
