mjp28 Posted February 15 Report Share Posted February 15 Ohio State cancels home-home series. 🏈 football games with UW ..... and has to pay UW $500,000. OK here we go again. Ohio State has wiped a prominent non-conference home-and-home series from its future football schedules. OSU announced Wednesday that it has canceled the two games it had scheduled with Washington. The Buckeyes were scheduled to travel to Seattle to face the Huskies in 2024 before hosting the return matchup in Columbus in 2025. Now neither meeting will take place. As a result of the cancelation, Ohio State will pay Washington $500,000 as was stipulated in the previously agreed to contract between the two schools. That penalty must be paid by February 2025. “We initiated the cancelation,” Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith said. “I have the utmost respect for the University of Washington and for director of athletics Jennifer Cohen, and this was a very difficult call to make.” ♥︎ Smith said that canceling the Washington game allows Ohio State to add an eighth home game in 2024. Ohio State has six home games on its 2023 schedule. ♥︎ “As a result of the cancelation, we will add an eighth home game for the 2024 season, affording us the opportunity to have the funding to pay the penalty and guarantee for that eighth opponent,” Smith said. >>>------> CONTINUED on GOOGLE SPORTS >>>------> Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
