The Ohio State vs Florida A&M wasn’t a particularly interesting game, unless you are a fan of watching one team beat the heck out of another while racking up the stats. Fortunately for Buckeye fans, they can always count on the Ohio State University Marching Band to be entertaining, even if the game itself isn’t. The OSUMB certainly didn’t let fans down this week thanks to yet another entertaining performance that also included some special and moving moments.
The pregame performance started in the usual way with the traditional ramp entrance followed by the playing of the opposing team’s fight song, though Florida A&M has perhaps the most unusual fight song that you will ever hear. The OSUMB then departed from their normal pregame routine, spelling out “USA” on each sideline as part of a salute to US military veterans with the playing of a medley of the service songs. The band then concluded pregame with the traditional tunnel sequence, team entrance, and playing of “The Star Spangled Banner.”
