The Ohio State band is in the news with a halftime routine that has gone viral.

The Ohio State Buckeyes rolled over Nebraska on Saturday night, with a rushing attack that gashed the Huskers defense for 63 points. But the most buzzworthy moment at the Shoe on Saturday happened during halftime. The Best Damn Band in the Land backed up and bolstered their reputation with a bit of nostalgia and coordinated wizardry.

The band paid tribute to some video game classics, including Zelda, Super Mario Brothers, Tetris, and Halo. It was an astounding display and elicited raucous applause from the Buckeye crowd. The highlight was a, homage to The Legend of Zelda that featured a galloping horse towards the end of the routine, representing Link's equine friend Epona. Another crowd favorite was the lowering of the Michigan flag and raising of an OSU flag on the castle from Super Mario Brothers 1. The video went viral ensuring that TBDBITL gets the credit they deserve for pulling off an incredible show.
