Aside from Tuesday's tough news that the program will be without starting corner Cameron Brown for the remainder of the season, the Ohio State Buckeyes are off to the best possible start they could have imagined through just two early weeks of the 2020 college football season.

Ohio State is 2-0 after two games, however, they've actually managed to lose their title as the nation's winningest program by all-time winning percentage following results beyond their control.

Ohio State Football All-Time Winning Percentage

That's right, despite winning both of their games played this season, the Boise State Broncos (462-170-2) managed to surpass Ohio State (926-326-53) as the FBS program with the best all-time winning percentage.

After defeating Air Force, 49-30, on the road in Week 10, the Broncos two wins from this year have elevated that all-time winning percentage higher (.7303) higher than than Ohio State's .7299, given the fewer total games Boise State's program has played overall than the Buckeyes.

The good news for Buckeyes fans, though, is that Boise State faces what appears to be its toughest opponents of the year this Friday against No. 9 BYU at home in Boise. In fact, the Broncos have already opened as 2.5-point home underdogs to the Cougars, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
