Ohio State University to get serious on game days

Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles were designed to resist improvised explosive device attacks.

Something police forces in the U.S. would rarely have a need for.

But the police force for Ohio State University says they’ll likely use their newly-acquired MRAP on football game days in Columbus.

More from the Lantern:

OSU often borrows vehicles of similar quality to serve previously listed purposes during large events like football gamedays, Denton said. It will serve primarily as a mode of transportation and protection for University Police, Denton said. He added the vehicle will be used if a situation arises but will primarily be used in instances where University Police has a strong presence, such as gamedays, Denton said.

“The Game” just got real.
