The Ohio State Buckeyes will without star wide receiver Chris Olave for Saturday’s Big Ten Championship game against 14th ranked Northwestern, according to ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg.

Ohio State will also be without starting linebacker Baron Browning, and could be without safety Marcus Hooker who is considered to be a game-time decision.

The report states that while the Buckeyes did not specify the reasons why players miss games, the team had additional positive COVID-19 tests this week among players and possibly staff. Big Ten policy requires any players who test positive for COVID-19 to miss a minimum of 21 days before returning to game action.
