OSU Marching Band Delivers Impressive Half-Time Tribute to Video Games

This Saturday, during the Ohio State-Nebraska game halftime, the Ohio State University marching band paid tribute to decades of popular video games in an impressively choreographed 10 minute show.

The video starts off a little shaky, but once the crowd settles down to watch the show things get significantly smoother. How many of the games do you recognize?

    So, does this mean that OSU moved from Oregon to Ohio?
    It reminds me of the Los Angeles Rams move. …Or the Lakers, if you follow b-ball.

    Still, doesn’t really hold a candle to Rice Univ. marching band’s uber dorky ‘Nilla Wafer followed by The Zero. [they looked suspiciously the same :) ]

    I’m member of the famous Marching 100 of Florida A&M University and I have to say that this was very impressive from Ohio State. #GoRattlers!!
