‘Best Damn Band’ puts on stunning halftime show

With a nickname like “The Best Damn Band in the Land,” you expect something special every time the Ohio State marching band takes the field.

Sure, Canadian sports fans aren’t as interested in collegiate sports as their American neighbours, but this performance is simply too good to turn away from.

During halftime of Ohio State’s 63-14 dismantling of Penn State on Saturday, the “Best Damn Band” took a shot at Big 10 rivals the Michigan Wolverines.

Yes, that’s a dinosaur eating a person around the 6:30 mark. And, yes, that’s Superman donning a cape and rescuing a teetering building.

Maybe the best part of this sequence is watching members of the Penn State band exit along the sidelines, looking on as they watch the opposing team’s band upstage them to no end.

Talk about a comprehensive defeat.

The fourth-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes meet Michigan in Ann Arbor on the final day of the Big 10 regular season.
