Ohio State's spring game to be in Cincinnati

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio State's 2013 spring game will be played on the road.

Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati will host the April 13 scrimmage because of renovations at Ohio Stadium.

The Buckeyes went 12-0 under first-year coach Urban Meyer this past season and return 14 starters, including nine on offense.

Ohio State will be resurfacing the seating areas at Ohio Stadium, prompting the change of venue to a city where Meyer played football for the University of Cincinnati. He is a 1986 graduate with a degree in psychology.

Ohio State and UC played at Paul Brown Stadium in front of 66,319 fans on Sept. 21, 2002, in Ohio State's only prior appearance in the 13-year-old facility.

The work at Ohio Stadium gets under way in January.
