September 13, 1975
Fresh off his Heisman-winning season in 1974, Buckeye running back Archie Griffin began the campaign for a second Heisman with an impressive road-performance against the No. 11 team in the country. Griffin led No. 3 Ohio State into East Lansing for an early season clash with Michigan State.
No. 45 rushed for 108 yards on 29 carries in the Buckeyes' 21-0 victory over the Spartans. It was his 22nd consecutive 100-yard rushing game.
Griffin rushed for 100-or-more yards in each of his next nine games; an NCAA-record 31 consecutive games with at least 100 rushing yards. He went on to win the 1975 Heisman trophy and is still the only player to win the award multiple times.
