Ohio Stadium Spring Game Crowd 2019 Ohio State Spring Game

The Buckeyes will next take the field for a “game” on April 11, 2020 for the annual Ohio State Spring Game.

Kickoff for the game is usually around 1:00 pm and generally airs on the Big Ten Network. That information will eventually be solidified.

Spring practice will get underway the week of March 2, which is just around the corner.

This year there will be 15 new Buckeyes taking part, with 14 of those being the freshmen who have chosen to enroll early. The 15th is SMU graduate transfer tight end Corey Rau, who has walked onto the Ohio State football program. He has not recorded a reception in his time at SMU.

Winter workouts begin next week for the team, which is when the freshmen really begin to assimilate into the football program. The team is handed over to strength coach Mickey Marotti and he will eventually give the team back to head coach Ryan Day in the summer.
