Ohio State football is set to have its spring game at Ohio Stadium on Saturday. Changes could be coming to the exhibition contest, though.

Urban Meyer tweeted this afternoon that the start time for OSU's spring game could be changing. As of now, it's scheduled for 1:45 p.m. E.T.

Bad weather is expected for a lot of the country this weekend, forcing a bunch of major programs to cancel their spring games. Ohio State still plans on playing its spring game, but it looks like it might not go off as scheduled.

"Please stay tuned for more information about a potential change to the Spring Game start time! Go Bucks!" Meyer tweeted.

Here's the full announcement:

Ohio State announced on Wednesday that the spring game was sold out. Roughly 71,000 tickets have been sold for the game.

Ohio Stadium's capacity is more than 100,000, but it's significantly lower for the spring game due to construction.

The Buckeyes' spring game is scheduled to be televised on Big Ten Network. Stay tuned for more updates regarding the start time of the game.
