Ryan Day: Ohio State 'the only school in America that can create a scene quite like that' in Week 1
Ryan Day and Ohio State had a special setting for the 2022 season opener vs. Notre Dame. Day sat down with BTN’s Dave Revsine to discuss that atmosphere.
In addition to the game vs. the Irish, Ohio State was also recognizing the 100th anniversary of Ohio Stadium and the 2002 national championship squad. It led to a unique vibe in the Horseshoe for Week 1.

“I stood in the middle of the Horseshoe at one point before the game, looked around,” said Day. “I’m seeing LeBron James, Jayson Tatum, Justin Fields to Sam Hubbard to Joe Burrow to Zeke Elliott… I think we had over 20 former Buckeyes, it was quite a scene.
“Ohio State’s the only program in America that can create a scene quite like that, the amount of recruits we had there, the number of families. It was electric and an honor to be a part of this tradition.”
To cap it all off, Ohio State was able to mount a second-half rally to take down Notre Dame. The Buckeyes also flashed a much-improved defense and physical ground game up front to put the game away.
