The Ohio State spring game will be played on Saturday, April 14 in Columbus, OH with an early start time. Here’s all the info you need to watch.
There’s a good chance that many Ohio State Buckeyes fans are still a little bitter about last season. Despite winning the Big Ten, Urban Meyer’s group was left out of the College Football Playoff. Now starts the road to righting that in the 2018 season, starting on Saturday, April 14 with the annual Scarlet and White spring game.
Obviously there will be eyes on quarterback for the Buckeyes following the departure of J.T. Barrett. Seeing who is primed to replace the productive signal-caller will be interesting, but so too will be seeing the battle at running back between J.K. Dobbins and Mike Weber. Both have been productive in their careers, but how the time-share will work will be curious.
As for the defense, there are questions there as well. From Jerome Baker to Tyquan Lewis to Sam Hubbard to Denzel Ward, the Ohio State spring game will afford many players the opportunity to replace departing stars. That’ll be another interesting wrinkle on Saturday in Columbus.
Weather had some more plans for the Ohio State spring game than expected, however. With a big storm expected to hit and plenty of other Big Ten schools even cancelling their spring games, the Buckeyes elected to still have theirs. Instead, they will move the start time forward by two hours to squeeze it in.
Details for Saturday’s spring game are below:
The early start time for the 2018 Ohio State football spring game shouldn’t really affect much, unless the weather should hit early. They’ve still got the same amount of spring practice in and the battles we should expect to see remain the same. We’ll see if the Buckeyes look like a team set on getting back to the College Football Playoff early on or not.
