Indiana's Memorial Stadium Has Been Good to Ohio State

Chip MinnichCorrespondent IOctober 31, 2016

31 Oct 1998: Tight end John Lumpkin #85 of the Ohio State Buckeyes in action during the game against the Indiana Hoosiers at the Memorial Stadium in Bloomington, Indiana. The Buckeyes defeated the Hoosiers 38-7.


Compounding Indiana’s frustration in this series is the fact that Memorial Stadium is commonly taken over by traveling Ohio State fans. For example, in the 2005 contest, Ohio State fans began their “O-H-I-O” chant throughout Memorial Stadium, much to the frustration of then-Indiana coach Terry Hoeppner. The 1996 contest in Memorial Stadium propelled Ohio State to the Rose Bowl and Ohio State fans stormed the field and tore down Indiana’s goal posts.

Will Memorial Stadium be another Buckeye haven this coming weekend? It will be interesting to find out if chants of “O-H-I-O” are evident during the Big Ten Network’s broadcast Saturday night.
