With an in-state foe at Ohio Stadium taking on the Buckeyes, the Ohio State marching band’s halftime show paid tribute to music acts from the Buckeye State.
They led off with a mashup of “Love Rollercoaster” and “Fire” from the Ohio players and performed their rendition of John Legend’s “All of Me” before they were done.
Formed in Dayton, the Ohio Players are among the most famous of the ‘70s era funk movement.
Legend is Grammy-winning Springfield native.
As for the game, Ohio State blew out Cincinnati.
