Ohio State football: Buckeyes break spring game attendance record with over 100,000

  The Gray squad beat the Scarlet squad, 28-17, in Ohio State's spring game on Satuday.

The Ohio State football program has always had a special fan base, but Buckeye Nation went above and beyond this weekend.

More than 100,000 Ohio State fans poured into The Shoe on Saturday to watch their team practice, setting a spring game attendance record. 

Incredibly enough, Ohio State broke its own record on Saturday. The Buckeyes nearly eclipsed 100,000 at last year's spring game, posting an attendance of 99,391.

In the week leading up to this year's game, Ohio State coach Urban Meyer had been lobbying to fans on social media to come out and help the Buckeyes break last year's mark and top 100,000.

Buckeye Nation certainly came through for Meyer and his team in a big way.
