Ohio State will close out the home portion of its 2008 schedule vs. Buffalo today at noon. If you don't mind 2,600 sixth-graders from Columbus City Schools, you should head out to the game. It is a great way to spend an afternoon and the weather should be perfect. Besides, it is your last chance to see the Baseball Buckeyes this season at Bill Davis Stadium.
The team also will honor its four seniors - Dan DeLucia, Tony Kennedy, Chris Macke and Rory Meister. The ceremony had been scheduled for Sunday, but was rained out.
The Bucks are headed to Iowa City, Iowa later this week to close out Big Ten play at Iowa. That series begins Thursday and concludes Saturday, giving teams an extra day off before the conference tournament, which begins next Wednesday in Ann Arbor.
