  • 19TH-ANNUAL CONNOR SENN MEMORIAL GAME: Donations will be accepted Wednesday for the event that raises awareness for sudden cardiac arrest in athletes with proceeds benefiting the Connor Senn Memorial Fund and the Dorothy M. Davis Heart & Lung Research Institute at the Wexner Medical Center. On Sept. 26, 2001, Connor Senn, a freshman on the men’s soccer team, collapsed on the field during the Buckeyes’ game at Akron and died that evening from a congenital heart defect, a condition virtually undetectable more than a decade ago. The Connor Senn Memorial Fund was quickly established by Dr. Lance Senn, Connor’s father and a former member of the Ohio State tennis team, with it expanding over the last decade to subsidize a fully-endowed scholarship at Ohio State and now to begin an educational symposium on sudden cardiac arrest.
  • Ohio State shutout both Cleveland State and No. 7 Akron since a 1-0 loss at No. 5 West Virginia Sept. 10.
    The Buckeyes last posted consecutive shutouts at Maryland (Feb. 27/W, 1-0) and at Michigan State (March 3/W, 2-0) in the spring.
  • The last time Ohio State posted consecutive home shutouts was during a stretch of six-consecutive shutouts (4 home/2 away) in September of 2017.
