This photo was taken after a tremendous Ohio State football victory against Big Ten rival Penn State. Not only did the buckeyes come from behind to win, but gave #2 Penn State it’s first loss of the season. Sitting in the 5th row of the student section watching the game was something I’ve never experienced before. The passion and emotion our fans displayed throughout the game was undoubtedly why our team was able to come back to win the game in its final minutes. For one of the first times it made me feel like a real Ohio State student and part of a larger community of fans that love our buckeyes. Rushing the field together signaled the coming together of a community that has members from all over world who share a common interest of bleeding scarlet and grey. It was an experience I won’t ever forget and makes me proud to call myself a The Ohio State Student.
