Fight Songs: "Across the Field" and "Buckeye Battle Cry"
The Ohio State University Marching Band is an all-brass and percussion ensemble, the largest such band in the world. "Across the Field" is the older of the two fight songs, composed in 1915 by William A. Dougherty, Jr. "Buckeye Battle Cry," however, is the one played after touchdowns. It was composed by Frank Crumit in 1919.
