Ohio Stadium: Columbus, OH

Game day here is a sea of scarlet and gray sweeping across the campus toward Ohio Stadium to see the Buckeyes vanquish yet another opponent. Despite recent NCAA violations and a head coach departure, Ohio State remains a national power with historic trappings: the Buckeye Grove of trees to honor OSU All-Americans, the victory bell that tolls after each game, and the sousaphone player dotting the “i” when the Ohio State marching band spells out the word “Ohio” at halftime.

Team Tradition: Decorating their helmets with buckeye leaves awarded for big plays.

Typical Chant: “O-H-I-O!”

Biggest Rival: Michigan.

Postgame Hangout: King Avenue Five.

Stadium Capacity: Approximately 102,000; ohiostatebuckeyes.com.
