COLUMBUS, Ohio (WSYX) — There will be a football game played in Ohio Stadium this August, but it won’t include the Buckeyes. The Classic For Columbus shared Thursday that the game against Central State University from Ohio and Kentucky State University will now be played at Ohio Stadium.

The game is scheduled to kickoff at 2:30 p.m.m on Saturday, August 28. This is a change of venue from the Historic Crew Stadium.

“We are excited to bring the Classic For Columbus football game back to the Shoe,” said John Pace, CEO for Classic For Columbus. “It has been 25 years since our football game has been played in Ohio Stadium so bringing this tradition back is exceptionally exciting.” Pace continued, “And the game and associated events will raise over $300,000 for scholarships and education.”
