Good morning, Ohio State fans, and welcome to the Scarlet Sunrise. Football will always be our focus, but every day we’ll cover news, notes and analysis from across Buckeyes sports. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Ohio State football, recruiting, basketball and more.

Harry Miller lands on another watch list for play, service

Harry Miller was already nominated for the AFCA Good Works Team last week for his play on the field and community service off it.

He landed on yet another watch list for a prestigious award in the same field. Miller was listed on the watch list for the Wuerffel Trophy, given annually since 2005 to the player “who best combines exemplary community service with athletic and academic achievement.”

Only one Ohio State player has ever won the award; former Buckeyes defensive tackle Joel Penton won it in 2006.

Miller, a starter from last season at left guard and projected starting center for the Buckeyes this fall, has taken multiple mission trips in his life, and he is a board member for Mission 4 Nicaragua, an outreach and charity nonprofit that helps that country.

After being nominated last week for the AFCA Good Works Team, Miller is now on the watch list for the Wuerffel Trophy.

Ohio State will host Bowling Green in 2027

Ohio State is starting to round out its future nonconference slate.

The Buckeyes currently have a trip to Boston College and a visit from Alabama on the books for the 2027 season. On Wednesday afternoon, Bowling Green announced on Twitter it will take a trip down to Columbus in 2027 for a Sept. 4 matchup. Ohio State holds a 5-0 all-time record against the Falcons.

The three games puts the cap on Ohio State’s 2027 nonconference schedule. The Crimson Tide will make their first ever appearance in the Horseshoe on Sept. 18, 2027. The Ohio State-Boston College game currently does not have a set date.

The last time Ohio State and Bowling Green met was back in the 2016 season opener. The Buckeyes scored 10 offensive touchdowns en route to a 77-10 victory.

The Buckeyes 2027 schedule is now complete. They’ll have a game with Alabama circled on the calendar, but they know they’ll also be facing Boston College and Bowling Green.

ICYMI: New Tim May Podcast

Tim May welcomes Bill Bender, the national college football writer for The Sporting News, on the show for a conversation about Texas and Oklahoma making their intentions known they plan to leave the Big 12 Conference for the SEC and what the move could mean for Ohio State and the Big Ten.

Texas and Oklahoma made their first formal step of leaving the Big 12 on Monday when they informed the conference they don’t plan on extending the grant of media rights past the 2024-2025 season. The addition of the two teams to the SEC makes the conference a mega-conference, a first of its kind.

How will Ohio State and the Big Ten make sure not to fall behind? Tim and Bill discuss a handful of options that the Big Ten could move. The guys break down each option.

Can the Big Ten become a mega-conference? What is the best move for the conference to make? And how will it make an impact on Ohio State?

Find out on this episode of the Tim May Podcast.
