Ohio State Reveals It Has A Played Called "Bama"

The 2013 Iron Bowl was a game for the ages. If you forgot about it, let's go through a quick refresher.

Alabama lined up to attempt a 57-yard game-winning field goal with just a few seconds left in the game. The kick was a few yards short, and an Auburn returner was ready. Chris Davis took the return all the way back for a touchdown, propelling the Tigers to a 34-28 win.

The play is coined the "Kick Six."

That infamous play may have happened back in 2013. But it's still being remembered.

Ohio State head coach Ryan Day revealed the Buckeyes have a play-call for a potential missed field-goal return. The team calls the play "Bama."

Whether intentional or not, that's some epic trolling from Day and Ohio State. The 2013 "Kick Six" is still a sensitive talking point for Crimson Tide fans.

But that won't stop Ohio State from calling the play if the opportunity presents itself. It'll be interesting to see if "Bama" has any special wrinkles to it.

The Buckeyes are gearing up for a pivotal Big Ten contest against No. 13 Wisconsin on Saturday. The game carries heavy playoff implications.

If the game is close — as many are expecting — OSU may have to dial up "Bama" at some point in the game.
