Reports: Multiple Ohio State players positive for COVID-19

An unspecified number of Ohio State players in more than one position group have tested positive for COVID-19, according to multiple media reports.

The No. 4 Buckeyes (4-0) are scheduled to play at Illinois (2-3) on Saturday. As of Thursday morning, the game was still scheduled, but reports said a final decision would not be made until another round of testing was completed.

Ohio State’s Nov. 14 game at Maryland was canceled because of an outbreak among the Terrapins. Under Big Ten rules, teams must play at least six games to be eligible to play in the Big Ten Championship Game, set for Dec. 19 in Indianapolis.

The Buckeyes’ remaining scheduled games are at Michigan State on Dec. 5 and against Michigan in Columbus on Dec. 12.
