Ohio State has put together an amazing season, but for many in the Buckeye community, 2014 was a somber year. In late November, walk-on Kosta Karageorge was found dead near his apartment, just as Ohio State's season was really beginning to pick up. The program has done a lot to honor Karageorge, and at today's Sugar Bowl, the Buckeye coaches will be wearing his number 53 on their outfits. 

The Sugar Bowl is set to kick off at 8:50, following the conclusion of the Rose Bowl. It will definitely be an emotional one for the Buckeyes and their fans.
