Ohio State football is the No. 1 topic in Wake Up Sloopy every day — but we cover news, notes and analysis from across Buckeyes sports. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Ohio State football, recruiting, basketball and more.

How to watch Ohio State-Indiana

The first sign of the interest surrounding Ohio State’s season opener came when it was announced that College GameDay would be on site at Indiana. It’s not only the show’s first time in Bloomington but also its first time at any Hoosiers game.

ESPN appears to be pulling out all the stops for the Aug. 31 game, too. In addition to the traditional broadcast, there will be six other ways to watch the game. The list includes an All-22 view, a homer broadcast, a skycam view, a data center broadcast, a coaches film room and a command center broadcast featuring multiple views on a split screen.

2 more lose black stripes

The list of Ohio State newcomers who have shed black stripes grew to five on Monday.

Defensive tackle Haskell Garrett and cornerback Jeffrey Okudah both lost their stripes. Both players are expected to contribute for the Buckeyes this season.

Ezekiel Elliott officially appeals

Former Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott has officially appealed his six-game suspension.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the hearing for the Dallas Cowboys running back is expected to be Aug. 29.
