Buckeyes guard won’t get start

SATURDAY, DEC. 7, 2013

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer will not let right guard Marcus Hall start tonight’s Big Ten championship game in Indianapolis against No. 10 Michigan State.

Meyer did not say how long Hall would sit.

The move comes less than a week after Hall was involved in a scuffle at archrival Michigan. He and kick returner Dontre Wilson were ejected from the game. Before leaving the sideline, Hall threw his helmet to the ground, then made an obscene gesture to the Wolverines fans as he walked into the tunnel.

The No. 2 Buckeyes (12-0) could reach a fourth BCS title game if they beat the Spartans (11-1). At the very least, the winner will play in the Rose Bowl game.
