Ohio State marching band does it again

We’ve written here in the past about how Ohio State’s marching band is reinventing the halftime show. When I interviewed members of the band this month, they said they had some new tricks up their sleeves. Saturday at halftime against Indiana, the group impressed with a tribute to the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address.

Here are a few highlights to check out:

— At 1:15: Soldiers march down the field with an American flag in hand.

— At 6:45: A soldier fires off a cannon.

— At 9:00: Two soldiers shake hands.
