Meyer passes Stoops for total wins in 15 seasons

  Urban Meyer surpassed Bob Stoops for the most wins in a coach’s first 15 seasons.

In a nail-biting win over Northwestern, Ohio State’s Urban Meyer tallied his 161st win, which put Meyer ahead of Oklahoma’s Bob Stoops for the most wins in a coach’s first 15 seasons.

In his 15th season as a head coach, Meyer is 160-27 for a .856 winning percentage, which tops all other FBS coaches with at least 10 years of head coaching experience. Including all-time FBS coaches, his win percentage comes in at No. 3, just behind Notre Dame’s Knute Rockne and Frank Leahy.

Since Meyer arrived at Ohio State, the Buckeyes have won 91.8 percent of their games, which is more than any other FBS school.

Meyer looks to continue adding to his total wins in Week 10 against No. 7 Nebraska.
