We'll have at least two grills going, so be sure to bring your
meat...and adult malted beverages, of course.

Akron Falls To OSU
Akron lost to OSU 20-2, but they didn't go without a fight. Akron scored early off an OSU safety and held the Buckeyes to a 3-2 lead at halftime. Ohio State fans were nervous for much of the game. They should have a new respect for their Northeast Ohio neighbors.
