Urban Meyer, Buckeyes receive MacArthur Bowl

The Ohio State Buckeyes are your defending national champions.

As the defending champs, Urban Meyer’s team added another piece of hardware to their trophy case when they picked up the MacArthur Bowl over the weekend at the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta.

The trophy is handed out each and every year by the National Football Foundation to the champion in the FBS.

“On behalf of the Ohio State University I want to thank Chick-fil-A… obviously the National Football Foundation and Steve [Hatchell] and then this beautiful Hall of Fame for having us here,” Meyer said in a release.

“It should be a tradition for the head coach to come celebrate at this incredible facility with fans. I want to thank our players, we had an incredible group and they should be here. They are part of history. We really try to develop a program where the players love each other and it’s a family atmosphere.

“The 2014 Buckeyes, that was a real team. How did they overcome adversity? Because they cared for each other. I’m honored to be here and on behalf of Ohio State, my football players and coaching staff to accept this incredible award. It has incredible history and we’ll forever be grateful to be on the side of this beautiful trophy.”

The Buckeyes will begin their national title defense against Virginia Tech in Blacksburg.
