Ohio State's marching band puts on another spectacular halftime show

October 27, 2013|By Austin Knoblauch

Though Ohio State Coach Urban Meyer probably has his players buying into the one-game-at-a-time mantra, the same can't be said of the school's marching band.

For weeks, the Ohio State marching band has been putting some Michigan smackdown elements into its halftime shows, despite the fact the Buckeyes won't line up against their longtime rivals until Nov. 30.

Much like everyone else outside of Ann Arbor, Mich., the Ohio State band knows the Buckeyes are better than the Wolverines this season, and this brash confidence has inspired some truly incredible halftime shows.

During Ohio State's 63-14 win over Penn State on Saturday, the band put on another well-choreographed display of on-turf magic. They call themselves "The Best Damn Band in the Land," and it's hard to argue that title based on the creativity of their shows.

Check out the entire halftime show in the video above -- the Michigan bashing comes near the end.
