Watch: Ohio State’s Ryan Day says he hasn’t picked a backup QB


COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Coach Ryan Day previewed Ohio State’s season opener against Minnesota on Monday afternoon. You can watch his comments in the player above.

The Buckeyes and Golden Gophers will kick off at 8 p.m. Thursday in Minneapolis. Other than the pandemic-delayed 2020 season, it will mark the first time since 2017 that the Buckeyes have opened the season with a Big Ten opponent, when they defeated Indiana 49-21 in another Thursday night game.

Ohio State will go into the game with C.J. Stroud as its new starting quarterback, but Day said he has yet to identify a backup.

Ohio State was ranked No. 4 in the preseason Associated Press Top 25 poll after going 7-1 last season and falling to Alabama in the national championship game.

Minnesota went 3-4 in 2020 under coach P.J. Fleck. The Gophers and Buckeyes did not play each other, nor were they scheduled to. In the teams’ last meeting, in 2018, Ohio State won 30-14.
