Ohio State football continues its fall camp preparation as the team waits for the Big Ten to announce its 2020 schedule. The conference had previously said it would be adhering to a conference-only model this fall due to COVID-19.
The Buckeyes have won the Big Ten the last three seasons and reached the College Football Playoff last year. It was the third all-time CFP appearance for Ohio State.
Preseason polls indicate OSU will once again be the league favorite this fall, with Penn State and Wisconsin projecting as top contenders.
