'Beat the Irish' blankets are covering Ohio State babies this New Year's Eve

Time to send in the infantry!

Clay Hall

Last year, Ohio State hospitals covered newborn infants with 'Beat Alabama' blankets. After the enormous success of said blankets, the fine staff at the Wexner Medical Center is at it again.

It's a very neat touch by the hospital staff as Buckeye fans prepare for the big game. The stakes may not be as high this time around, but it should still be one of the more intense and competitive games of the bowl season. All hands will be needed on deck to help propel Ohio State to victory, including hands that are tiny and can't hold many things outside of their parents' fingers just yet.

The No. 7 Ohio State Buckeyes will take on the No. 8 Notre Dame Fighting Irish on Friday, Jan. 1, 2016. The two former playoff-contenders will kick off at 1:00 p.m. ET from University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. The Buckeyes will look to end their 2015 season on a high note as they look to challenge for the Big Ten title once again in 2016. The Buckeyes are currently favored by 6.5 points. You can catch the game on ESPN as you relax tomorrow in the post-New Year's Eve wake.
