Ohio State coach Ryan Day has tested positive for COVID-19 and won't be with the Buckeyes when they play at Illinois on Saturday.

Ohio State said it had an increased number of positive COVID-19 tests in the program this week, but the game against the Illini was still on. Buckeyes veteran defensive line coach Larry Johnson will act as interim coach with Day unavailable.
