The Ohio State University Marching Band celebrated the music of Freddie Mercury and Brian May with a halftime show dedicated to Queen.

For the season opener against Oregon State University, the marching band played some of the greatest hits of the British rock band. “We Will Rock You,” “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” “Bohemian Rhapsody” and other songs filled Ohio Stadium.

The band marched in formations that spelled out Queen and honored Mercury and May. Band director Christopher Hoch designed the drill for the show.

Cody Faist, from Columbus, Ohio, dotted the ‘i’ this week. Faist is a civil engineering major who graduated from Bishop Ready High School.
