Ohio State-Alabama A&M Game Cancelled

Tough news for Buckeye fans.

NCAA Basketball: Illinois State at Ohio State Joseph Maiorana-USA TODAY Sports

The Ohio State Buckeyes got some tough news on Friday morning as the program learned its Saturday matchup with the Alabama A&M Skyhawks would not be going forward as scheduled. The athletic department put out a release suggesting the cancellation was due to COVID-19 protocols.

This is one of a handful of Big Ten games that have officially been cancelled or postponed just a week and a half into the season. Ohio State was hoping to use Saturday to build momentum going into next week’s matchup against Notre Dame. The Buckeyes remain 3-0 and ranked in the top 15 on KenPom.

As noted above, Ohio State’s next game will now be a matchup against Notre Dame on the road next Tuesday. It figures to be one of the better games in this year’s Big Ten-ACC Challenge. KenPom projects Ohio State as a six-point favorite.

BTPowerhouse will continue to post updates on this game as more is learned.
