Ohio State Student Section Calls For Stadium-Wide Blackout

0

Ohio State students want to black out in more ways than one on Saturday when the Nittany Lions come to town.

The Block O, the Buckeyes’ student section, tweeted Tuesday for fans to “#BlackoutTheShoe” — signaling the second consecutive time that fans attempt to fill Ohio Stadium in all black for a matchup with Penn State.

The blackout isn’t an official Ohio State event, but fans first held it against the Nittany Lions while the Buckeyes debuted their all-black uniforms in 2015.

The event was cool for the all-black jerseys, but with the Buckeyes wearing grey uniforms on Saturday, it seems like the fans are trying too hard to mimic the Penn State White Out, especially after the attention the annual Beaver Stadium event got last year in the upset win over Ohio State.
