No real cheese, though

What’s a trip to a stadium without getting yourself an order of round, over-salted tortilla chips to dip in flourescent yellow sauce purporting to be cheese-based? Wisconsin fans would gag at the mere sight of processed nacho cheese, but their Big Ten rivals in Columbus apparently love the stuff. 

A user on Reddit’s Ohio State football board posted a photo from an awards night showing a bunch of data on attendance at Buckeyes home games in 2018. Fans at Ohio Stadium ate eight tons of nacho cheese, 200 gallons of mustard, 25,165 boxes of popcorn and 8,682 bags of candy.


That amount of cheese sauce weighs as much as two Ford F-150 pickup trucks. The mustard could fill 179 footballs.

The eight tons of cheese were spread out over 42,614 orders of nachos, which works out to six ounces per order. Or, as another Reddit user pointed out, that’s one ton for every touchdown Ohio State scored against Michigan in November. 

Defense optional

When two of the worst teams in the NHL meet, they can either look like two of the worst teams in the NHL or they can make each other look like offensive powerhouses. The latter was the case for the Blackhawks and Senators, who combined for nine goals in the first period.
