COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio State will pay more than $2 million in total guarantees to bring Virginia Tech, Kent State and Cincinnati to Ohio Stadium to play the Buckeyes in football this fall.

Virginia Tech, which comes to Ohio Stadium on Sept. 20 as the first of a home-and-home series with the Buckeyes, will receive a $350,000 guarantee.

The Buckeyes get an $850,000 guarantee to open against Navy on Aug. 30 at Baltimore's M&T Bank Stadium.
