Celebrate Perfect 12-0 Season During Pep Rally at St. John Arena
By Brandon Castel
COLUMBUS, Ohio — Not ready to put the 2012 football season behind you? Well, you’re in luck. Neither are the Buckeyes.
The Ohio State University will hold an enthusiastic “skull session” celebration to commemorate Urban Meyer and the school’s undefeated, 12-0 football team on Friday, Dec. 7 at St. John Arena.
The Best Damn Band in the Land will get things going with a selection of fight songs and Ohio State favorites at 6:30 p.m., and OSU fans are encouraged to come out and celebrate the Buckeyes, who finished undefeated and untied for only the sixth time in 123 seasons of football.
Along with the Ohio State University Marching Band, this skull session-like celebration will also feature appearances from Brutus Buckeye, the OSU cheerleaders and University President E. Gordon Gee.
Local and statewide dignitaries, including Governor John Kasich and Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman, will be on hand to enjoy the celebration, which will include a presentation of the Big Ten Conference Leaders Division championship trophy.
The championship trophy will be on display before the event along the south side of St. John Arena. Championship apparel also will be available for purchase at a booth in the southwest lobby of the arena.
Ohio State coach Urban Meyer will headline the event, along with members of his senior class, who are expected to address the crowd at Ohio State’s historic St. John Arena.
Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. with music from the Ohio State University Marching Band starting at 6:30 p.m. and the program to follow shortly thereafter. Fans are encouraged to park in the Tuttle Garage and the Ohio Stadium lots. All entrances to St. John Arena will be open.
Ohio State students holding a valid BuckID card will be admitted and seated in the bleachers surrounding the court.
Ticket vouchers – free – are needed by the general public to be admitted into the event. Vouchers can be printed off or scanned to a smart phone from the following link: Perfect Season.
