The Show in The Shoe: Retro Night in the House that Harley Built


Nov. 3, 2016

After a Scarlet Saturday victory over Northwestern, Ohio State is set to welcome No. 10 Nebraska for a primetime showdown in #TheShoe.

Throwback Threads

In 1916, the Ohio State football team, led by halfback Chic Harley, registered the school’s first undefeated season en route to claiming the conference title. To commemorate the 100-year anniversary of that season, the school will add a new throwback look to its uniform collection, complete with scarlet and gray striped jerseys, gray pants and matte black helmets.

Salute to Service

In addition to the “Throwback Theme,” numerous military recognitions including a pregame flag presentation, on-field enlistment ceremony and student veteran recognition are planned as part of the annual Military Appreciation Game inside Ohio Stadium.

When We Need You The Most!

The road to Indianapolis continues Saturday night against No. 10 Nebraska and we need YOU to Be the Best Fans in the Land!

Be Loud
Be Proud
Be Respectful
Be Responsible
Be Aware – 21 means 21

#BuckeyeNation. We need you.

EVERY defensive down.

Let’s bring the 🎶 & 🔥 to The House That Harley Built & #BeatNebraska together.

Championship Callout

The 2016 Ohio State men’s volleyball team will be recognized at the 50-yard line in between the first and second quarter Saturday for its remarkable national championship run last spring.

Lasers, Pyro and Chalk… OH MY!

We’re pulling out all the stops for the only night game in Ohio Stadium this season. Keep your eyes peeled for a special laser light show in the Buckeyes’ tunnel when the team takes the field for its Top 10 showdown with the Huskers.

Press Box Pyro: Complementing the customary pyro off the top of the south videoboard, the west side of the stadium will feature fireworks for the first time during introductions and after Ohio State touchdowns.

Chalk It Up: Swing by the north rotunda on your way into The `Shoe to see a unique chalk art design honoring the storied Chic Harley, Ohio State’s first All-American (1916). Additional drawings to include a 3D “O-H-I-O” photo op and a memorial to Buckeye great John Hicks.

Get Closer to the Action!

You can take a pregame locker room tour, score a photo on the field with Brutus Buckeye, take in Carmen Ohio like never before and more as fans now have the chance to take advantage of exclusive gameday experiences.

New to The `Shoe this week:
