When it comes to a Texas-sized, top-15 matchup, Ohio State Buckeyes fans, coaches, and players shouldn’t need any help getting hyped up for the big game. In case you do, the scarlet and gray’s video and graphics team have (yet again) made another outstanding video trailer ahead of the showdown.
The Buckeyes are a perfect 2-0 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas and will look to continue their winning ways in Jerry World Saturday night.1 Although the stakes aren’t as high this trip compared to the last two, they still have a chance to prove just how good they are against a solid, top-15 team in TCU. Whether it’s quarterback Dwayne Haskins, defensive end Nick Bosa, or the rest of the team, they are ready for their biggest non-conference game of the season.
The video starts with a couple snippets from that game in 2015.
“I’m just a [true] freshman. I’ve only heard the stories. I wasn’t there when a third-string quarterback came in and shocked the world,” quarterback Matthew Baldwin says while highlights of Cardale Jones from that special game almost four years ago play in the background.
The video continues with a handful of other young Buckeyes talk about them not being there for that game, all talking about specific plays throughout that national championship.
“But we will be there this weekend,” a number of them say. “It’s time for our moment.”
It concludes with a few highlights from Ohio State’s first two games of the season, both of which were blowouts.
In case Buckeye Nation needs any more help getting prepared for Saturday night, TCU seemingly canceled a home-and-home in back-to-back years and changed it to just one game, a game that is supposedly on a “neutral” field. That “neutral” field is just 19 miles off TCU’s campus. How convenient, right? The best part is that Buckeye Nation will still make it feel like a home game for Ohio State simply because they almost make every road game feel like a home game except for a select few.
If you haven’t already run through a wall after watching the video, just get prepared for what should be a very good game between Ohio State and the Horned Frogs. Is it Saturday night yet?
Ohio State and TCU are set to kick off at 8 p.m. ET on Saturday.
