COLUMBUS, Ohio — Todd Boeckman and his backups at quarterback, Antonio Henton and Joe Bauserman, each completed a long pass that led to a touchdown as the Scarlet beat the Gray 20-7.
The announced attendance was 76,346, but that appeared to be inflated on a gray and rainy day.
“I think a lot of people probably bought their tickets and then left when the rain came,” running back Maurice Wells said. “I didn’t see 76,000.”
Ohio State officials were trying to set a national record for attendance at both the men’s lacrosse game and the spring football game that followed it at Ohio Stadium.
The lacrosse mark of 52,004, set at last year’s national semifinals in Baltimore, was never in jeopardy as 29,601 showed up early to also take in the lacrosse match.
