Ahead of the matchup, on Friday morning, the Buckeyes released their status report:

Ohio State is getting left tackle Thayer Munford and linebacker Baron Browning back, which, certainly helps. On the flip side, both defensive end Jonathon Cooper and wide receiver Austin Mack are in danger of missing the game.

Both players are play-makers that can change a game in one play. Along with Cooper and Mack potentially missing action, sophomore linebacker Teradja Mitchell is listed as a game-time decision as well. Mitchell has made eight tackles this season.
