Ohio State football is returning in October; religion during the pandemic has evolved

Today is Thursday, Sept. 17, 2020. Here’s what you need to know:

Good morning, 

Ohio football fans, you will not be left with the Browns and Bengals as your only options for football this fall. Rejoice, Ohio State is back. 

Despite plans to hold off on a college football season until spring, the Big Ten announced it will start back up the weekend of Oct. 23-24. Teams will play an eight-game schedule followed by matchups based on seeding in lieu of a single Big Ten Championship game. 

The decision comes after a unanimous vote motivated by access to COVID-19 testing and changing medical circumstances. Tickets will not be sold to the general public, but some attendance is expected.
