Well, we know who Columbus Blue Jackets captain Nick Foligno will be rooting for on Saturday.

On the eve of the annual Ohio State-Michigan college football rivalry game, Foligno decided to lay his loyalty out there for all of Nationwide Arena to see.

Foligno came out after being named the game's second star -- he scored two goals in the Blue Jackets' 5-2 win against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday -- wearing a grey Ohio State Buckeyes football helmet.

He skated across the ice and tossed his stick to a fan as the crowd went wild.

The No. 2 ranked Buckeyes play at No. 10 Michigan Saturday at noon.

Needless to say, the crowd in Columbus loved Foligno's new look.
