The Ohio State and Indiana will join a number of other programs across the country who will be honoring the victims and those affected by Hurricane Harvey.
During their season-opening game on Thursday night, the Buckeyes and Hoosiers will be wearing special helmet decals.
The decals feature an outline of the state of Texas, with a circle around Houston — which has been severely impacted by catastrophic flooding following the record rainfall caused by Harvey. The words “Houston Strong” grace the decal, along with “Hurricane Harvey Relief Efforts.”
Ohio State and Indiana are the second and third programs to reveal Hurricane Harvey decals, following in the footsteps of Texas A&M.

Programs like Baylor and SMU will also be lending a helping hand to the community, providing free tickets and food to those who have been forced to evacuate their homes due to the storm.
It’s always great to see people around the country coming together in a time of need, and this is another gesture that shows the people of Houston and surrounding areas continue to be in our hearts and minds during this tragic time.
Ohio State and Indiana kickoff at 8:00 p.m. ET on ESPN.
