OSU often borrows vehicles of similar quality to serve previously listed purposes during large events like football gamedays, Denton said.
It will serve primarily as a mode of transportation and protection for University Police, Denton said. He added the vehicle will be used if a situation arises but will primarily be used in instances where University Police has a strong presence, such as gamedays, Denton said.
“The Game” just got real.
