In 1983, Ohio State avenged its 1977 loss to the Sooners by thumping OU 24-14 in Norman.

Ohio State quarterback Mike Tomczak found tight end John Frank seven times for 108 yards and two touchdowns.

The Buckeye defense, meanwhile, contained OU's rushing attack and held the Sooners to only 177 rushing yards.

The Sooners struggled in 1983, finishing with an 8-4 record.

Ohio State lost the following week at Iowa and ended the year 9-3.
