A three-game homestand comes to a close Saturday in The Horseshoe as Ohio State welcomes UNLV to Columbus for the first meeting between the two schools on the gridiron. The Buckeyes and Runnin’ Rebels are set for the season’s initial noon kick off as well.

Hot … like Vegas HOT
The forecast is calling for temperatures in the mid-to-upper 80s Saturday. Fans should dress accordingly (in scarlet and gray), pack the SPF and of course hydrate. To assist in your quest to quench, free water will be made available throughout the stadium at the following locations:

  • 16A, 17A, 5C, 6C, 28C, 29C and in South Stands

Quad Script
There is only one Saturday a year when the question is posed: is it possible to improve upon the incomparable? The answer: YES.

Saturday a flood of scarlet and gray will pour down the north rotunda ramp and carpet the Ohio Stadium turf as we welcome back TBDBITL alums to perform with the current edition of this year’s marching band. Be in your seats early for a pregame performance and be sure not to miss an unforgettable halftime show as well.

Going the Extra Yard
Extra Yard for Teachers Week is finally upon us. Saturday Ohio State in partnership with the College Football Playoff Foundation will celebrate and support teachers across the country. Please be ready during a break in the action to recognize our teachers.

Buckeye Walk/Skull Session
Don’t miss the initial team trek from The Blackwell hotel through Skull Session at St. John Arena and then the North Rotunda into Ohio Stadium. The journey begins at The Blackwell at approximately 10 a.m. and will lead into a raucous setting that will include not only the Best Damn Band in the Land, but also hundreds of alumni rehearsing for the big show inside The Shoe.

Breakfast at FanFest
With the noon kickoff, fanfest and the Buckeye Gameday Concert Series will be rocking bright and early. Stop by Remembrance Park outside St. John Arena to join in the pregame fun.

Reminders: Parking, No Bags and Be the Best Fans
