COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio State football spring game will kick off at approximately 1:30 p.m. Saturday in Ohio Stadium. If the intrasqaud contest is anything like the past two seasons, a crowd of at least 75,000 people could be in attendance.

For the first time, fans that cannot attend the game and live outside the Columbus viewing area will be able to watch the action live via stream at

In past years, the exhibition pitting the scarlet vs. the gray was broadcast live locally over the air in Columbus and available in parts of the state on a taped cable telecast. This season fans may find it foreign to pull up a chair to their computer monitor, but they will have the chance to see live which team walks away with bragging rights heading into the 2008 season.

In addition to live look-ins at eight Big Ten spring games Saturday afternoon, Big Ten Network will show Ohio State’s spring tilt on a delay basis. The game broadcast will air at 11 p.m. Saturday and again at 6 p.m. Sunday.

The football spring game follows the Ohio State vs. Denver men’s lacrosse contest in Ohio Stadium, which starts at 11 a.m. Both games are part of the “Scarlet and Gray Days” promotion to attempt to set attendance records in baseball Friday vs. Purdue at 6:35 p.m., as well as softball at noon Sunday vs. Penn State.
