You have to hand it to the Ohio State ban for its spectacular halftime performance Saturday to honor Abraham Lincoln.
The band honored Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, given 150 years ago, with a series of songs and movements that spoke to the events of the Civil War.
The band opened with members spelling out "1863" on the field.
The showed three marching soldiers, with a flag, which brought a huge roar from the fans.
They morphed into a horse with a soldier on back, shared a photo of Lincoln surrounded by the Lincoln Memorial, fired a cannon and wrapped up the show with two people shaking hands with an American flag above.
