Ohio State football’s 2018 spring game is still on — for now. The Buckeyes issued a statement Thursday saying they would keep an eye on the weather forecast for Saturday before making the final decision about playing their sold out Scarlet and Gray scrimmage or not.
“Ohio State is evaluating the weather forecast for Saturday and will be making a final decision on the 2018 LiFE Sports Spring Game at a later time,” the program said in a statement. Urban Meyer added a tweet, saying the program could potentially move the time of kick off from 1:45 p.m. ET.
