The celebrations continued for the Buckeyes' 2002 national championship team Saturday night.

Twenty years after Ohio State won the national championship, Jim Tressel, some of his former assistants and a bunch of players from that team gathered back in Columbus for a 20th-anniversary celebration. It culminated in an on-field celebration during the first half of the Buckeyes' season opener against Notre Dame Saturday night.

To conclude the celebration, the team lifted Tressel into the air, something that fans in the Shoe loved. Does it get better than this? Hits you right in the feels.

The 20th-anniversary celebration began Friday night at Land-Grant Brewing with Eleven Warriors, continued on College Gameday this morning, and finished up at Ohio Stadium. Not a bad way to celebrate 20 years later.
