Ohio State's Illinois hype video is the realest

Get ready to get hyped for playing Illinois and earning the rights to keep the Illibuck in Columbus.

It's a rivalry week, and the Ohio State video production team is at it again, producing yet another game trailer this week for the battle against Illinois. Check out the Buckeyes in their scarlet home jerseys as you see the likes of the Ohio State marching band, quarterback J.T. Barrett, H-back Dontre Wilson, and even Armani Reeve's bone-crushing hit from the Penn State game last weekend.

Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott gets a nice segment where he shows off his fantastic sidestep against the Nittany Lions in slow motion, which should really get your adrenaline pumping. Of course, what would the hype video be without featuring Joey Bosa's sack on Christian Hackenberg to seal up the Buckeyes' victory in Happy Valley?

Now Ohio State will prepare to host Illinois tomorrow night at 8 p.m. in the 'Shoe for the rights to the beloved Illibuck trophy, which has rightfully resided in Columbus the past handful of seasons.
