The Ohio State Buckeyes are set to take on Utah in the Rose Bowl on New Years' Day, and fans of the scarlet and gray are already making plans to travel across the country to see the big game.

Ike Reynolds, owner of Reynolds Travel in Columbus, said his website got nearly 500 hits Sunday as news spread that the Buckeyes were Rose Bowl-bound.

He said interest in the game has exceeded his expectations, which he credited to the resilience of Buckeye fans.

"Even though they get down, like after a Michigan loss, two or three days go by … they're back on board and ready to support the Buckeyes, and go wherever they go," said Reynolds.
