Sept 5, 2009. It truly was a special day in Ohio Stadium as Ohio State welcomed Navy to open that season’s campaign. That day, The Horseshoe burst with hues of red, white and blue. Fans can expect a similar scene Saturday when the Buckeyes face the Black Knights of Army West Point.

Eyes to the Sky, the Field and more…
As the coaches always say, keep your head on a swivel Saturday in The Shoe. Pregame, be ready for some visual and audible stimulation provided by some of our nation’s finest servicemen and women. We’re going to leave it at that … no spoilers here.

Eat lunch and then eat some more at Fan Fest
