Ohio State's punter and kicker could fly them to the Fiesta Bowl. Probably

Cam Johnston 'bout to land the plane at the one yard line.

Does he or kicker Sean Nuernberger (pictured to his right) have any real aviation experience? Almost assuredly not.

Ohio State arrives in Phoenix this afternoon at 4:30 p.m. local time and take on Notre Dame New Year's Day at 1 p.m. ET.
