The Ohio State Buckeyes are back, with some spring football Saturday afternoon.
The Buckeyes are coming off of what was a great season up until the Fiesta Bowl loss to Clemson, but they’re back and still loaded with talent all around that we’ll be able to see at a sold out Ohio Stadium of 82,000. Around 20,000 seats will not be available on Saturday due to construction at the stadium.
Urban Meyer has always been big on getting fans to see the Bucks in the spring, and that’s no different this year.
"We're very fortunate to watch guys perform in front of a lot of people in the seats, a lot of people in the stands," Meyer told ESPN. "I love it. I love the fact these kids get to play in front of a group like that."
We should be seeing that on Saturday. As far as the teams go, Team Gray will be coached by Greg Schiano, with J.T. Barrett and Dwayne Haskins at quarterback. Others on the team include Parris Campbell, Binjimen Victor, and Mike Weber.
For Team Scarlet — coached by Kevin Wilson — Joe Burrow and Tate Martell with be quarterbacking. K.J. Hill, Austin Mack, and Demario McCall highlight just some of the players on their squad. You can view the full rosters here.
Here’s other information that you need to know.
Are there any special guests?
Urban Meyer has asked Nike Chairman Emeritus Phil Knight and former head coach Lou Holtz to be guest coaches for the game. Knight will be the honorary coach for Team Gray, and Holtz for team Scarlet.
Where can I park if I’m attending?
If you are attending the game, parking is free in lots around the stadium and on campus, except for the west stadium lot.
Can I still go, or is it too late?
Those who have already purchased tickets will be able to attend. If you are a student hoping to go, you will be able to get in with your BuckID, along with children under the age of 6.
