Ohio State encourages Buckeyes to ‘Be The Best Fans in the Land’

Ohio State University and the Department of Athletics encourage and remind fans to “be the best fans in the country,” as the team’s northern rivals enter Columbus and Ohio Stadium.

Sportsmanship, respect for others, patience and acting responsibly should be the mindset for all fans all week as Ohio State supports and encourages its fans to cheer on the Buckeyes.

There will be plenty of activity in and around Ohio Stadium on Saturday. FOX’s Big Noon Kickoff will take place at a location adjacent to Ohio Stadium and the RPAC, and ESPN’s College GameDay will once again be broadcast from the south lawn at St. John Arena.

Kickoff for the 118th game between Ohio State and Michigan is at noon.
