    Throw away your tortilla chips, folks. There's a new sponsor in town.

    Today, the Buckeyes will return to the Fiesta Bowl for the first time since 2009. Ohio State has played in six Fiesta Bowls since its inception in 1971, and the last four of those were during Tostitos' years as sponsor. Those were fun years, right? We got to eat lots of chips and salsa, and OSU even won a national championship!

    Things have changed out in Arizona, though, and Tostitos is no longer the big jefe. Vizio ran the show last season, but now things are looking a bit greener. This year, the Buckeyes and the Fighting Irish will face off in the BattleFrog Fiesta Bowl. No, I didn't make a typo, and no, you didn't misread anything. That says BattleFrog.

    What is BattleFrog, you ask? Well, BattleFrog is a 1991 Nintendo game series of "obstacle course races." According to their website, though, it's "more than a challenge" and is "a way of life." To me, that makes it sound like a cult, or maybe CrossFit. (Haha ZING!) But seriously, have you seen/heard of Tough Mudder? It's like that, only with less mud and more amphibians. (Okay, now I'm being told by my editor that there aren't actually any frogs involved in either one. My apologies.)

    The course length varies depending on the race; you can do a mile, a 8K (about 5 miles), a 16K (about 10 miles), or, for the XTREME among you, you can just keep doing laps on the 8K course until you can't walk anymore. Personally, I'll stick to playing "Battletoads", which is way harder. If this sounds like your type of thing, though, then check out their list of 2016 events. While Columbus didn't make the cut, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, and Chicago aren't that far away. (There's one in Detroit, too, but we don't give a damn for the whole state of Michigan. We're from Ohio.)
