the U vis­its the Shoe

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS - — Cedric Golden

The Horse­shoe is al­ways filled to ca­pac­ity at 105,000-plus when the Buck­eyes play, but there will be an ex­tra buzz in the air on Sept. 11 when the Mi­ami Hur­ri­canes come to town. It will be the first meet­ing since the 2002 na­tional cham­pi­onship game when the Buck­eyes topped the Hur­ri­canes 31-24 in dou­ble over­time at the Fi­esta Bowl. Folks in Co­ral Gables call it the “Flag Game,” re­fer­ring to the late pass-in­ter­fer­ence penalty against Mi­ami on an in­com­ple­tion that ap­peared to come on the last play of the game. Folks in Colum­bus call it the day the Buck­eyes won their sev­enth na­tional ti­tle.

We will sim­ply call it a great early-sea­son matchup that can’t get here soon enough.
