Ryan Day isn’t the only one missing today’s game vs. Michigan State. The Ohio State football team will be without four starters and some key reserves due to COVID as the Buckeyes hope to overcome vs. the struggling Michigan State Spartans.
Three starters on the offensive line Thayer Munford, Josh Myers and Nicholas Petit-Frere and starting linebacker and team captain Tuf Borland are out as the Buckeyes look to make a statement to the College Football Playoff committee.
Ohio State short-handed vs. Michigan State due to COVID
“This has been a difficult week for everybody,” Buckeyes coach Ryan Day, who also tested positive and will not coach Saturday against Michigan State, told ESPN’s College GameDay. “Two of the last three weeks have been canceled, and so it’s been an emotional roller coaster. This is an opportunity for our guys to really show their leadership and what this team is made of. We’re short-handed, but it’s going to be a great day.”
