Rankings from AP Poll

The 1969 Ohio State Buckeyes football team represented the Ohio State University in the 1969 Big Ten Conference football season. The defending national champion Buckeyes compiled an 8-1 record.

Top-ranked all season, the Buckeyes lost the rivalry game at Michigan on November 22 and dropped to fourth in the final AP Poll. There was no bowl game for Ohio State, because prior to the 1975 season, the Big Ten and Pac-8 conferences allowed only one postseason participant each, for the Rose Bowl, and prior to 1972, a team could not represent the Big Ten in the Rose Bowl in consecutive seasons.
