    Food and football go hand-in-hand. And if bacon truly makes everything better, a bacon vending machine in The Horseshoe should be a match made in pigskin heaven.

    I'm going to be honest, I didn't think there was a shot in hell Ohio State's stadium-wide WiFi was going to work anywhere close to smoothly when they rolled out the new system against FAU in the home opener.

    I was wrong to doubt it. It worked tremendously, allowing fans to use a combined 13.3 terabytes of WiFi data during the FAU game.

    From Paul Kapustka of the Mobile Sports Report:

    With almost 2,000 access points and the possibility of more than 100,000 Ohio State fans logging on, it was a good bet to think that the new Wi-Fi network at Ohio Stadium would produce some big numbers when it went live. And now, we have numbers to back up that bet, as according to the school, the new Wi-Fi network saw 13.3 terabytes of data used during the season home opener Aug. 31 vs. Florida Atlantic.


    Using Wi-Fi gear from Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, in a design and deployment by AmpThink, the network saw 47,137 unique connections at the hope opener, out of approximately 86,000 fans in attendance. The peak concurrent connection number for the day was 28,900, according to the school.

    The network performed similarly a week later in a home game against Cincinnati, with 12.7 TB recorded from 47,579 unique connections (out of approximately 91,500 in attendance). The peak concurrent connection number for the second game was 29,500, according to the school.

    For those of you who aren't savvy on your data usage or storage unit sizes, that's about as much data as a single person would use on the smartphone in about 550 years. It also ranks fifth all-time in terms of WiFi usage at a single event, behind only the two most-recent Super Bowls and this year's Final Four games.

    There's no word on how much of that that air time is collectively spent on, but I have to assume it's pushing 80 percent.

    Was watching some Mexican League soccer and noticed their stadiums do the dark/colored light show after goals. Was curious when that would make it’s way to CFB.

    Think I saw Bama does that this year. Now they just need the spotlight like hockey.

    Bama & Georgia (no surprise it’s those two, right?) were the two teams I’ve seen with it this year. I saw Bama’s first.
