YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - This Saturday's Big 10 Championship game between Ohio State and Michigan State is laced with Valley ties.

There will be three local players on the Buckeyes' side of the field: Corey Linsley, a senior from Boardman High School, is the starting center; George Makridis, a senior from Warren Harding is the starting long snapper; and junior J.T. Moore from Boardman is a backup tight end and special teams player. Moore's sister, Darryce, is a senior on the OSU women's basketball team.
