Ohio State played 14 games in 2002 due to the fact that they made it to the BCS Championship Game, and played one more game than some other teams did. Their record has been matched twice since.

Is there any other team in Division 1 football besides Ohio State that have won fourteen games in a season?

Actually the game against SDSU was not moved from the 2001 season to the 2002; however, the game was moved to a later date that year that was a bye-week for both teams. The reason for Ohio State having 14 wins that year is due to the Kickoff Classic, the 12 regular season games, and the Fiesta Bowl. The rules back in 2002 only allowed a team to play 12 regular season games; however, if you were invited to a "preseason" contest then you could play a 13th game before the bowl game. The "preseason" game does count in your W-L record. Ohio State won all 14 games.
