Ryan Day declined to comment on the recent investigation into Michigan football at the start of his Week 9 press conference Tuesday.

The NCAA is investigating Michigan for allegedly using electronic equipment to record opponent signals. Multiple B1G schools allege a now-suspended Michigan staffer, Connor Stalions, purchased over 30 tickets to B1G football games across the past 3 years.

Both Day and OSU DC Jim Knowles declined comment, with Knowles saying the “higher-ups” instructed him not to comment on the matter.

However, Day did mention to reporters that he believes in-helmet technology, similar to the NFL, should be implemented at the college level to allow coach-to-player communication, negating the need for signals altogether.

Ohio State fans have to feel better than any in the B1G right now. The Buckeyes are undefeated with wins over Notre Dame and Penn State. A battle against Michigan, barring any unforeseen pitfalls, should determine a spot in the B1G championship game for the East division.

As for this week, Ohio State travels to Madison to take on Wisconsin. The Buckeyes and Badgers face off at 7:30 p.m. on NBC.
