Ohio State football: Buckeyes call field goal return play 'Bama'

  Urban Meyer's Buckeyes toppled Alabama in last season's College Football Playoff Semifinal.

Urban Meyer and Ohio State have apparently been having some fun at the expense of Alabama.

The Buckeyes coach revealed Thursday that his team works on a field goal return play called “Bama.”

This, of course, is a playful shot at the Crimson Tide, who notably lost to Auburn in 2013 after Chris Davis returned a field goal miss for a touchdown as time expired.

Auburn's miracle return stuns Alabama
Nick Saban and Alabama were surely already seeking revenge on Ohio State after the Buckeyes knocked them out in the College Football Playoff Semfinal last year. We’re sure this only serves as further motivation to get another shot at Ohio State in this year's final four.
