While Urban Meyer was giving his first game-week press conference of the 2017 season, the Ohio State football program released their hype video for the season-opening match-up against Big Ten foe, the Indiana Hoosiers.
The video opens with painful images of the 31-0 defeat at the hands of the eventual national champion Clemson Tigers in last season’s college football playoff. It then reminds the players and fans that war and adversity strengthens the bonds of brotherhood.
The video includes highlights of the fall camp with Meyer, veteran leaders including J.T. Barrett, and more pumping up the team, repeating the phrase, “You play this game for your brother,” before ending on an image of the season theme “One Strong.”
The No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes will travel to Bloomington, IN to take on the Hoosiers on Thursday, Aug. 31. The game will kick off at 8/7c, and will be the host of ESPN’s first on-site “College GameDay” of the season, and will be broadcast on the ESPN family of networks with their Megacast treatment.
