Players from Ohio State’s 2002 national championship team hoisted their former coach Jim Tressel on their shoulders. Meantime, the crowd gave him a standing ovation at Ohio Stadium.
OSU honored the 10th anniversary of the program’s 2002 football team — the last Buckeye squad to win a national championship.
Saturday’s game against Michigan was the final time the undefeated Buckeyes took the field this season.
Ohio State won 26-21. They would have challenged for a BCS title.
But the NCAA levied a postseason ban against OSU as a result of the “Tattoo-Gate” scandal that ultimately forced Tressel to resign in May 2011.
