The Ohio State football team is back in action.

On Tuesday, the Buckeyes announced that football activities will resume after a temporary pause that was brought on by a positive COVID-19 test from head coach Ryan Day.

The positive test resulted in Ohio State cancelling last weekend’s game against Illinois and led to the pause in activities.

“The Ohio State University football team will resume organized team activities this afternoon in preparation for its game Saturday against Michigan State in East Lansing, Mich.,” the Buckeyes announced in a statement.

The news comes at a perfect time because Ohio State would have been at risk of missing out on the Big Ten Championship if it was forced to cancel another game.

This weekend, the Buckeyes are set to take on Michigan State.

Kickoff between the No. 4 Buckeyes and Spartans at Spartan Stadium is set for 12:00 p.m. ET on ABC.
