    Q: Dating back to 1950, I believe Ohio State has won more football games than the vaunted Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Am I right? - Wayne Kerek, Strongsville

    A: Yes. Since 1950, Ohio State has won 443 games, including the postseason. Notre Dame has won 412. Only Oklahoma and Nebraska, both with 466, and Penn State, 447, have won more games than the Buckeyes. Notre Dame ties Florida State for 10th best. Ohio State's overall winning percentage of .748 is second to Oklahoma's .752, although the Buckeyes' regular-season percentage of .765 is best in the nation. Michigan, the Buckeyes' archrival, ranks eighth in total victories (432) and is fifth in total percentage at .721.

    Here's another fact that doesn't need to be qualified, like the regular season thing above. Buckeyes are #1 in winning % since 1925:
