On October 26th, the OSU football team put its winning streak and undefeated season on the line vs. the Nittany Lions of Penn State – who had just come off a dramatic win over the team up north! While our football team jumped all over Penn State from the opening kickoff, in route to a 63-14 drubbing, the OSU band is the one stole the night with its halftime tribute to “Hollywood Blockbusters.”
This eight minute performance captured not only the music rendition of some of America’s beloved movies, but the band also marched its way into depicting some of the movies favorite and most memorable moments! Click here to see the full performance.
Personally, my favorite renditions were Jurassic Park and Pirates of the Caribbean (the last two in the attached link). In the Jurassic Park montage, the band transformed into a T-Rex and ran down the field to gobble up an unexpected person. This attack was capped by T-Rex spitting out the humans hat – a marque moment in any Jurassic Park movie!
The band capped off this amazing half time show with a classic Pirates of the Caribbean battle between two ships –OSU vs. Michigan. Of course, the OSU ship proved to be much stronger and a better shot, as it sunk the Michigan boat!
What even made this day even more special was spending it tailgating and enjoying the game with other 1st and 2nd year Fisher MBAs. The two years here at Fisher fly by and it’s moments like the Penn State gameday that truly create an amazing MBA experience!
