Ohio State football released a hype video on Friday evening in anticipation of its spring game on Saturday.
Ohio State will hold its annual spring game tomorrow, and it should be quite the event. Over 80,000 fans are expected to be in attendance, and it would likely top 100,000 if the full stadium was open, but unfortunately 20,000 seats are off limits due to construction.
At any rate, the hype is very real for this Buckeye squad, as head coach Urban Meyer has said he likes to use the intrasquad game as a way to evaluate the response of his team to playing in front of a large crowd. It might as well be a real game. It is Ohio State football, after all.
So in anticipation of the matchup, the official Ohio State football account released this little video to get Buckeye fans everywhere psyched.
Check it out:
We’ve been on the grind for over a month & it all culminates tomorrow in front of a capacity crowd at The Shoe.

Honestly, it got me pumped and ready to watch the scrimmage, and I’m not even an Ohio State fan.
Kickoff is set for 12:30 p.m. E.T. and the game will be aired on BTN. Nike founder Phil Knight will serve as coach and honorary captain of the Gray team, and former Ohio State assistant Lou Holtz will do the same for the Scarlet squad.
