Scarlet Saturday livestream gives Buckeye fans chance to engage on game day

Virtual fan experience is centered on the Best Fans in the Land

With strict limits placed on fan attendance inside Ohio Stadium for the 2020 football season, the Ohio State Department of Athletics is inviting fans to participate in Scarlet Saturday presented by Coca-Cola, a livestreamed second-screen experience aimed at engaging Buckeye Nation at home.

The stream can be accessed via:

The livestream will begin at 11 a.m. with the debut of “Ohio State Football: Voices Episode 3” before the team head into Ohio Stadium on game day. More on the “Voices” series: https://go.osu.edu/fb-voices-series

Matt Andrews, sideline reporter for 97.1 The Fan FM, the flagship radio station for Ohio State Athletics, will preview each matchup and fans also will have the opportunity to enjoy virtual performances from The Best Damn Band in the Land.

Additional items fans can expect:

  • Live statistical feed
  • Player animations
  • Fun, interactive features: Coach interviews, Backyard Buckeyes, trivia, etc.
  • Peek-ins to fan Zoom rooms
  • Antics from Brutus Buckeye (he has a lot up his sleeve for Nebraska)
  • Most importantly… YOU!

Although fans are not in The Shoe cheering on the Buckeyes, Scarlet Saturday is centered on the Best Fans in the Land.

Ohio State will share pictures of fans wearing scarlet from home on the video board inside The Shoe and on the livestream for supporters, friends and family to see live.
