We have already seen Sugar Bowl hype videos and babies dressed up in "Beat Alabama" blankets.

So, we ask, what's next?

Well, it looks like some Ohio State fans are having fun with Nick Saban's statue in Tuscaloosa.

Buckeye fans have been dressing up the statue in Ohio State gear. Check out the photo above, which shows Saban's statue with an Ohio State shirt that reads "Urban Meyer Knows."

If the buildup to this matchup is this entertaining, imagine how exciting the game itself will be.

Kickoff for Thursday?s Sugar Bowl matchup between Alabama and Ohio State is set for 8:30 p.m. ET.
