Buckeyes ride double-decker jet on way to Fiesta Bowl

Ohio State chartered a double-decker United plane. The players had seats that let them put their feet up and relax.

“It was really sweet,” said Weber on Tuesday in a press conference at the Camelback Inn in Paradise Valley, Ariz. “I was laid out like it was a bed.”

The Buckeyes play No. 2 Clemson at 7 p.m. Saturday in the College Football Playoff semifinals. They hold their first practice in Arizona on Tuesday afternoon at Notre Dame Prep Academy in Scottsdale.
