It's been a great day for Ohio State as the football program kicked off its 2019 campaign. Not only did they start the season with a win, they received a $1 million donation from the Boren family.

Mike Boren built a legacy in Ann Arbor with the Michigan Wolverines, but his eldest son actually made the most of his memories with the Ohio State Buckeyes.

Justin Boren originally went to Michigan in 2006 to play for head coach Lloyd Carr. After his sophomore season, he decided to transfer because Rich Rodriguez took over for the program.

Usually players don't transfer from Michigan to Ohio State. However, Justin Boren did exactly that by taking his talents to Columbus.

The rest of the boys from the Boren Family played for the Buckeyes, replacing their father's roots with the Wolverines.

On Saturday, the Boren family showed their appreciation for Ohio State football with a generous donation.

Here is a shot of Mike Boren presenting the check for his donation:

As for the season opener, Ohio State took care of business against Florida Atlantic. Justin Fields shined in his debut by putting on an offensive clinic in the first quarter.

Overall, the Buckeyes couldn't have started the 2019 season any better than they did.
