Ohio State sets spring practice, spring game dates
Ohio State will be back on the field later this month.
Tuesday, the program announced that it plans to begin spring practices on Friday, March 19. It will have 34 days to fit in 15 practice dates, the standard for every team in college football. Ohio State also plans to hold its annual spring game on Saturday, April 17.
It is still unclear what the details will be for Ohio State’s spring game, and whether or not fans will be permitted to attend. Last year, the Buckeyes canceled the spring game due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Ohio State’s football spring drills will begin March 19. We are holding April 17 as the date for a spring game, although at this time we don’t have details as to what this game will look like from a fan/attendance perspective.
