Ohio State Buckeyes 2020 Football Schedule Announced


Sat, Sep 19, 2020

Schedule released by league after it announced a return to competition Sept. 16


Columbus, Ohio – The Big Ten Conference released its new 2020 fall football schedule on Saturday, Sept. 19. The Ohio State Buckeyes will now kick off its eight-game regular season on Oct. 24 with a home game at Ohio Stadium against the Nebraska Cornhuskers.


The Big Ten’s 2020 football campaign of games had previously been modified to reflect conference-only games on Aug. 5, and then was postponed entirely by the league on Aug. 11 because of uncertainties surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.


A return to competition was announced by the Big Ten on Sept. 16.


“The Big Ten’s Council of Presidents and Chancellors (COP/C) adopted significant medical protocols including daily antigen testing, enhanced cardiac screening and an enhanced data-driven approach when making decisions about practice/competition,” according to the Big Ten release. “The COP/C voted unanimously to resume the football season starting the weekend of Oct. 23-24, 2020. The decision was based on information presented by the Big Ten Return to Competition Task Force, a working group that was established by the COP/C and Commissioner Kevin Warren to ensure a collaborative and transparent process.”


Ohio State’s 2020 schedule will feature its season opener against Nebraska Oct. 24, which will be followed consecutively with games Oct. 31 at Penn State, Nov. 7 at home vs. Rutgers, Nov. 14 at Maryland, Nov. 21 home vs. Indiana, Nov. 28 at Illinois, Dec. 5 at Michigan State and Dec. 12 home vs. Michigan.


Special date games, such as Friday games, will be determined and announced at a later date.


As announced Wednesday, all Big Ten teams will play a ninth game on championship weekend, Dec. 18-19, with the East Division and West Division champion playing for the outright Big Ten crown and the 12 other teams matching up in a unique, east vs. west, #2 vs. #2, #3 vs. #3, etc. format


The Big Ten will require student-athletes, coaches, trainers and other individuals that are on the field for all practices and games to undergo daily antigen testing. Test results must be completed and recorded prior to each practice or game. Student-athletes who test positive for the coronavirus through point of contact (POC) daily testing would require a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test to confirm the result of the POC test.


Ohio State Sports Update

Ohio State’s additional fall sports – men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s soccer, field hockey and volleyball – are planning for a spring season consistent with the NCAA decision to move their championships to the spring. Updates regarding Big Ten fall sports other than football, as well as winter sports that begin in the fall including men’s and women’s basketball, men’s hockey, men’s and women’s swimming and diving and wrestling, will be announced at a later date.

Jeff Hafley





September 19, 2020


DURHAM, N.C. — The Jeff Hafley era at Boston College gets into the win column in week 1, as Boston College powered to a 26-6 win over Duke at Wallace Wade Stadium.

Phil Jurkovec was 17-of-23 for 300 yards on the afternoon, with a pair of touchdown passes and an interception.  Zay Flowers hauled in five passes for a career-best 162 yards and a touchdown.  Hunter Long hauled in seven passes for 93 yards and a TD.  Seven different receivers accounted for the 17 receptions on the afternoon.

Travis Levy rushed for a team-high 65 yard on five carries, including a 58-yard scamper.  David Bailey led BC with 18 carries for 51 yards and a score.  Pat Garwo gained 25 yards on five rushes.

Bailey began the scoring for the 2020 season with a one-yard plunge into the end zone, as the Eagles covered 81 yards in 10 plays on their opening drive at the 7:46 mark.  Duke would counter with a touchdown with 3:00 left in the opening quarter but would miss the PAT kick, making it 7-6.  That score would hold through the second quarter and into the half.

QB Phil Jurkovec threw for 300 yards and 2 touchdowns

Boston College tacked on 19 points in the second half,, beginning with a 24-yard field goal from Danny Longman at the 9:24 mark of the third quarter.   Jurkovec tacked on his first throwing touchdown of his BC career, finding Long from nine yards out, extending the lead to 16-6 with 2:39 to play in the third.

On BC’s next possession, the redshirt sophomore QB aired it out on first down, dialing up Flowers on a 61-yard strike to make it 23-6 heading into the fourth.  Longman connected again on a field goal, this time from 29 yards, with 4:54 to play, giving BC a 26-6 advantage.

Boston College’s defensive corps forced five Blue Devil turnovers on the afternoon – two by way of the interception, while forcing and recovering three fumbles. Jahmin Muse and Isaiah McDuffie each picked off Duke QB Chase Brice, logging returns of 38 and 23 yards, respectively.

Max Richardson led BC with eight tackles (five solo), while Deon Jones made seven stops (four solo).  McDuffie and Josh DeBerry each logged six tackles.  Marcus Valdez logged five tackles, including a sack



Atlantic Coast Conference News: Miami Hurricanes Ellis one of 30 candidates for NCAA Woman of the Year Award


Brittny Ellis


September 17, 2020


INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – The Woman of the Year Selection Committee announced Thursday that Miami track and field All-American Brittny Ellis is among the Top 30 honorees for the 2020 NCAA Woman of the Year Award. Click here for full release. 

Selected from a record 605 school nominees — a group that was then narrowed to 161 nominees by conference offices — the Top 30 honorees include 10 from each of the three NCAA divisions. All have demonstrated excellence in academics, athletics, community service and leadership. The honorees competed in 14 sports and studied a broad range of academic majors, including nursing, mechanical engineering, biochemistry, criminal justice, kinesiology, accounting and advertising.

“The 30 honorees selected this year excelled in the classroom and in competition while also remaining committed to serving their peers and communities,” said Suzette McQueen, chair of the Woman of the Year Selection Committee and senior associate commissioner for external relations and strategic marketing/senior woman administrator at the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association. “These outstanding women represent the thousands of diverse and talented women competing in college sports each year, and we’re proud to recognize their achievements on and off the field.”

Ellis will depart Miami as one of the most successful student-athletes in school history. A stellar runner in the 400 meters, she finished her career with three ACC Indoor Championship gold medals. She added five total silver medals – two in indoor competition and three in outdoor – and was a member of four ACC championship teams.

The Gurnee, Illinois, native is a two-time USTFCCCA All-America second-team selection and twice earned USTFCCCA Honorable Mention All-America honors. Ellis left her mark in the UM record books with the fourth-fastest 400m indoor time in school history and ran on two 4×400 relay teams that rank among the top five. She added the fourth-fastest time in the outdoor 400m and is part of Miami’s second-fastest time ever in the 4×400 relay.

Ellis’ success story extends beyond the track and includes several academic honors. She is a five-time All-ACC Academic Team member and a two-time USTFCCCA All-Academic team honoree. Ellis has been inducted into Miami’s highest honor society, Iron Arrow, and is a member of the Omicron Delta Kappa Fraternity.

A 2020 NCAA Post Graduate Scholarship recipient, Ellis graduated with her bachelor’s degree in nursing and is pursuing her master’s degree in health informatics.

Ellis joined NC State soccer All-American Tziarra King as one of two student-athletes nominated by the Atlantic Coast Conference for the 2020 NCAA Woman of the Year honor. The pair emerged as the ACC’s candidates following a vote of the league’s 15 member schools. The strong list of nominees from member institutions also included Boston College’s Emma Guy (basketball), Duke’s Meible Chi (tennis) and Alyssa Marsh (swimming & diving), Florida State’s Molly Carlson (swimming & diving) and Shanice Love (track & field), Georgia Tech’s Jeanine Williams (track & field), Miami’s Kristina Fisher (soccer), North Carolina’s Jacqueline Litynski (fencing), Pitt’s Stephanie Williams (volleyball) and Taylor Middleton (track & field), NC State’s Mackenzie Glover (swimming & diving), Syracuse’s Lila Nazarian (lacrosse), Virginia’s Zoe Morse (soccer) and Jocelyn Willoughby (basketball) and Virginia Tech’s Rachel Pocratsky (track & field/cross country).

The selection committee will announce the nine finalists, including three women from each NCAA division, in mid-October. From those finalists, the NCAA Committee on Women’s Athletics will select the 2020 NCAA Woman of the Year. The Top 30 will be celebrated, and the Woman of the Year will be named this fall.
