The bar for The Ohio State University marching band was already high, but the young musicians outdid themselves on Nov. 1 at halftime of the Ohio State-Illinois football game with this ode to spacey entertainment from Star Trek to 2001: A Space Odyssey to Apollo 13.
College marching bands do have a long history of geeking it up at halftime. Two more examples:
*The Stanford University band paid homage to Snapchat, by forming its ghostly logo on the field during the Rose Bowl to kick off 2014. The photo-sharing app company was started by a pair of Stanford alums.
*The University of California band, during a game vs. Stanford, performed a big-time tribute to video games, including Pokemon and Tetris.
Are we missing any other really good ones?
