Ohio State doesn’t forget. That includes students. Last year, Oklahoma backup QB Austin Kendall said the Buckeyes had a “basic” defense and that Baker Mayfield would “light them up.”
Well, Ohio State rolled in last season’s meeting, 45-24. Now Buckeyes fans are getting into the fun of mocking the quote, as they will apparently spell out “BASIC” with cards for Saturday night’s game.

The troll job by the students set for Saturday’s game isn’t the first time Ohio State has used the “basic” quote to fire back at Oklahoma. During ESPN’s College GameDay Saturday morning, a fan held up a sign that mocked the quote.

If the hype for the showdown between No. 2 Ohio State and No. 5 Oklahoma wasn’t enough before, this takes it to another level.
The Buckeyes and Sooners are set for 7:30 p.m. ET Saturday on ABC.
