Running back Mike Weber slept all the way from Columbus to Phoenix on Monday. It wasn’t hard to do because the No. 3 Ohio State Buckeyes, most of whom wouldn’t fit comfortably on your average commercial jet, rode in style all the way to Arizona for the Fiesta Bowl.
Ohio State chartered a double-decker United plane. The players had seats that let them put their feet up and relax.
“It was really sweet,” said Weber on Tuesday in a press conference at the Camelback Inn in Paradise Valley, Ariz. “I was laid out like it was a bed.”
The Buckeyes play No. 2 Clemson at 7 p.m. Saturday in the College Football Playoff semifinals. They hold their first practice in Arizona on Tuesday afternoon at Notre Dame Prep Academy in Scottsdale.
