  • 20TH-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.
  • The 2022 Buckeyes now own the Ohio State record for fewest loses over the first 10 games of the season after the draw (2-2) with Rutgers last Friday.
