Ohio State University to get serious on game days
Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles were designed to resist improvised explosive device attacks.
Something police forces in the U.S. would rarely have a need for.
But the police force for Ohio State University says they’ll likely use their newly-acquired MRAP on football game days in Columbus.

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.
