Ohio State’s fifth different Heisman Trophy winner—and first since two-time winner Archie Griffin—running back and College Football Hall of Famer Eddie George consistently found space in what looked like otherwise locked-up lines during his four years as a Buckeye.
6’3” and 230 pounds, Eddie George combined nimble agility and lightning speed to threaten the record books every time he touched the ball, beginning in his freshman season when he carried for five touchdowns in his first four games. By the end of George’s 1995 senior year, he had set (and still holds) the school record for most rushing yards in a single season with 1,927, a feat that led to 24 touchdowns and took Ohio State to an 11-2 record en route the Citrus Bowl. Following his college career, Eddie George went on to become a four-time NFL Pro Bowler as part of the Houston Oilers/Tennessee Oilers/Tennessee Titans. Pay homage to No. 27 with this throwback-inspired instant classic.

Ohio State’s fight song “Across the Field” was written in 1915 by student William A. Dougherty, Jr., 12 years after school song “Carmen Ohio.” While “Carmen Ohio” perfectly expresses the revere all Buckeyes have for their alma mater, Dougherty Jr. felt it didn’t embody the necessary notes to amp up the Scarlet and Gray before stomping the gridiron, thus he took it upon himself to write and add the now-classic “Across the Field” to the catalogue.
It’s proven so popular it’s been co-opted in differing forms by a range of schools. But despite its widespread riffs, the song remains a Buckeye original. Warm up your voice and get ready to bolster your Buckeyes across the field with this super-soft Scarlet and Gray classic.
Ohio State’s one and only mascot—and don’t forget, multi-sport, year-round athlete—debuted a half century ago at the Buckeyes’ 1965 Homecoming game against Minnesota.
Originally donning a cumbersome, homely, papier-mâché headpiece, Brutus has come a long way from his first Ohio Stadium appearance. As for the name, Buckeye Nation has alum Kerry Reed to thank, who proposed “Brutus” in the Union Department Store “Name the Buckeye” contest during Michigan week later in the season and who was handsomely rewarded for the moniker with a $50 gift certificate. Celebrate 50 years of Brutus with our quintessential super-soft ringer.
