Good morning, Ohio State fans, and welcome to the Scarlet Sunrise. Football will always be our focus, but every day we’ll cover news, notes and analysis from across Buckeyes sports. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Ohio State football, recruiting, basketball and more.
Master Teague earns Master’s acceptance from Ohio State
Master Teague has a chance to be the lead starting running back on one of the best teams in college football this fall.
He will also have a chance to earn a Master’s degree in the process. Teague was accepted into the Master of Architecture program at Ohio State on Wednesday. The two-time Ohio State scholar athlete has a huge opportunity to play a key role in the Buckeyes offense as they break in a new quarterback and feature a loaded wide receiver room. Teague can be a massive part of the offense with another impressive offseason.
But football isn’t the only area Teague is excelling right now. He’s off to graduate school at Ohio State, on his way to earning a Master’s degree.
Big Ten revises conference football schedule
The dates of all nine of Ohio State’s 2021 conference games — and the path to a fifth-straight conference crown — have been shuffled around and are now official.
The four-time reigning Big Ten champs will open conference play in Week One at Minnesota on a Thursday night, Sept. 2, before playing three nonconference games. That all remained the same from the original schedule. But most of the conference games have changed dates, otherwise.
Ohio State will travel to Rutgers on Oct. 2, a date that originally had the Buckeyes traveling to Nebraska. The road trip to Lincoln won’t happen until the first week of November. The high-anticipated home game against Penn State has also changed dates; the Buckeyes will now face the Nittany Lions on Oct. 30 instead of Nov. 20.
Ohio State hasn’t lost a conference game since it was taken down by Purdue back in 2018. The Buckeyes officially know their path now to a fifth-consecutive Big Ten crown. It starts in Week One against a Big Ten West program, and it ends in Indianapolis.
