The Ohio State University football team is presented a resolution by Senators Bacon, Hughes, Faber, and Tavares.

State Senator Kevin Bacon (R–Minerva Park) today honored The Ohio State University football team for winning the first ever College Football Playoff National Championship.

After losing Heisman candidate and starting quarterback Braxton Miller before the season, the Buckeyes, led by Head Coach Urban Meyer, finished the regular season with an impressive 11-1 record, but were forced to turn to their 3rd string quarterback for the postseason. The Buckeyes then went on to beat Wisconsin, Alabama, and Oregon to win their 8th National Championship.
“What this team was able to accomplish despite being counted out early on in the season is incredible,” said Bacon. “Their resilience was displayed after losing two starting quarterbacks and the tragic death of a teammate. They made the State of Ohio proud and I am honored to have them here today.”
