Larry Johnson will serve as interim head coach for this game and moving forward if Day can’t coach the following week against Michigan State. There’s a 10-day-policy from Big Ten protocol where he can’t be around the team but it’s still unknown if this was just the first test.
There was a report earlier in the week that the game was potentially going to be moved since some players on the Buckeyes tested positive but it still looks like the game will go as scheduled tomorrow.
Kickoff for the game will be at Noon ET and it’ll be televised by the Big Ten Network.
