University Statement Regarding NCAA Notice of Allegations

COLUMBUS, Ohio–The Ohio State University has received a Notice of Allegations from the NCAA related to previously announced matters involving members of its football program.  The allegations are largely consistent with what the university self-reported to the NCAA on March 8, 2011, and which were widely covered in the media.  The university will continue to work cooperatively with the NCAA during the response phase to the NCAA that now begins, and will have no further comment until the process is completed.
