One of two Ohio State football practices Wednesday will be televised by ESPN, the all-sports network has announced. ESPN will film Ohio State’s morning practice and will then replay the session in its entirety beginning at 1 p.m.

Ohio State is allowing ESPN a rare look inside Ohio State football practice, normally closed to the public. Its stop in Columbus is part of ESPN’s traveling college football preview coverage.

The Buckeyes are nearing the end of fall camp in preparation for the start of the 2005 regular season. Ohio State opens with a noon game vs. Miami (Ohio), Sept. 3 at Ohio Stadium. That game will be the first of four-consecutive home games for the Buckeyes.
