Buckeye fans, it’s (almost) time to go buck wild because football practice is about to start!

The upcoming 130th season is an exciting and nerve-wracking one, as former Ohio State University Head Coach Urban Meyer retired in January, leaving the program in the hands of Ryan Day. The defensive staff has also changed, and OSU has also hired a new passing game coordinator/quarterbacks coach.

Day’s first camp and the team’s first practice of the season will kick off Friday, August 2nd. All practices will be at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. According to 247Sports, there will be a 30-minute-long open window for taking videos and photos starting at 9 a.m.

Following August 2nd, the preseason practice dates are as follows:

  • August 3rd
  • August 4th
  • August 6th
  • August 7th
  • August 8th
  • August 9th
  • August 10th
  • August 12th
  • August 13th
  • August 14th
  • August 15th
  • August 16th
  • August 17th
  • August 19th

The first day of classes starts on August 20th, and the first game of the season will be on August 31st.
