In the first half of Saturday’s game against the No. 13 Wisconsin Badgers, the No. 3 Ohio State Buckeyes scored a total of 10 points. In the second half, they scored 28. What changed?

Sure, it could have been that OSU’s depth began to wear down the Badgers. Or, it could have been the fact that the rain slowed down a little bit. But, I prefer to believe that the Buckeye players were inspired by The Best Damn Band in the Land’s halftime show, “SpongeBob: The Great Buckeye Chase.”

The Ohio State University Marching Band performed an incredibly memeable program featuring SpongeBob, Gary, Plankton, Patrick, Sandy, and all of your Bikini Bottom favorites.

Check out the full halftime performance below:

Following this performance, OSU outscored the Badgers 28-7, and outgained them 251 to 119. I think that it’s pretty clear that the power of the sponge inspired them to the biggest victory of their season.
