From Diver Down to touchdown! The Ohio State University Athletic Band took to their latest home game at halftime to pay tribute to the music of Van Halen.

Ohio State's marching band has previously gone viral for choreographed medleys paying tribute to music from video games, film scores, classic TV and hitmakers like Michael Jackson.
