Ohio State just came off their biggest win of the season and one of the biggest comebacks in recent memory last weekend against Penn State. With that said, you knew there was going to be some highlights from that game in the hype trailer for the Buckeyes’ visit to Iowa to take on the Iowa Hawkeyes.
The trailer starts by showing Urban Meyer and company celebrating the comeback victory then shoots to a shot of Buckeye Nation on the field. It’s only right that the video then shows quarterback J.T. Barrett motioning the “this is our house” symbol following the game-winning touchdown pass to Marcus Baugh to give the Buckeyes their first and only lead of the game.
“Every single snap you better let them know that they came to play Ohio State today. Every single snap—Ohio State,” a voice echoes in the background.
“They said. Count us out. We said. Count on us.” Those words went across the video before the highlights from the comeback began.
The video then gives you a look at the game-changing plays against Penn State. Whether it was Denzel Ward’s blocked punt, J.T. Barrett’s touchdown passes in the closing minutes, or Sam Hubbard’s double tackle of Penn State quarterback Trace McSorley and running back Saquon Barkley to break up the read option, the video gives viewers a look at highlight after highlight.
“Here’s what’s going to happen. We’re going to win this game because of our toughness. We’re going to win this game,” Assistant Director of Football Sport Performance Mickey Marotti is heard (and seen) yelling to the Buckeyes in the halftime locker room. He obviously wasn’t wrong.
“A Brotherhood. Is Unrelenting. Unbreakable. Undeniable. This. Is. Ohio. Beat Iowa,” the video shows while taking a look at some of the best touchdown-making and bone-crunching plays before cutting to a clip of quarterback J.T. Barrett telling his team to “long live the brotherhood right here,” after the big-time comeback.
Ohio State takes on Iowa in Kinnick Stadium at 3:30 p.m ET on Saturday. The game will be broadcast on ESPN.
