Shut outs

When OSU scored with 10 seconds left against the Spartans Saturday I tweeted excitedly:

WooHoo Michigan still the last team to shut out OSU!

Since it was also apparent that M was the last team to shut out Minnesota - I thought it would be interesting to see who was the last to shut out each of the boneg teams.

NebraskaArizona St19-09/21/1996
Penn StMichigan20-010/6/2001

Michigan leads as the last shutter outer with 5 (including consecutive weeks); OSU is next with 3 then Illinois and Iowa close out the boneg schools with ASU and Syracuse the only non-conference shutter outers.

If you look only for boneg conference shut outs - Wisconsin was shut out by Iowa 31-0 on 11-16-1996.

Nebraska has not been shut out in a conference game since Oklahoma beat them 27-0 on 11/23/1973. But as far as their current conference is concerned, they have not been shut out by a boneg team since Purdue skunked them 28-0 on 9/27/1958.

My final bits are when Michigan was last shut out in a non-conference game: a 25-0 loss to Independent MSU on 9/29/1951. How about against a team not currently in the boneg ? That gets screwed up as well. M (with Gerald Ford) lost to U of Chicago 27-0 on 10/13/1934. But of course that was a conference game...
You have to go back to M's 10-0 loss to Navy on 10/30/1926 for their last loss against a team unrelated to any version of the boneg .
