“Same Bricks, Different Stories” served as this year’s theme for Ohio University’s 93rd Homecoming weekend. The Homecoming Parade on Saturday included both university-related and Athens-related floats and banners followed by the Marching 110 and the Marching 110 Alumni Band. Passion Works created the winning float and International Student Union won for best banner. The sidewalks surrounding Union Street and Court Street were filled with students, alumni, faculty, Athens citizens and visitors to celebrate the Homecoming game to come.

The Ohio Bobcats swept the Battle of the Bricks against long-time rival Miami RedHawks, with a 34-3 victory. At halftime, Ohio’s 2015 Homecoming King Conor Emser and Queen Elizabeth Oellermann were crowned. Both the current Marching 110 and the Marching 110 Alumni Band performed memorable sets together for halftime and post-game.
