Ohio State star defensive end Chase Young will be held out of one more game as punishment for breaking NCAA rules by accepting a personal loan.
The penalty was announced by Ohio State in a statement Wednesday.
That means the preseason All-American will sit out Saturday’s game against Rutgers, missing a total of two games, and then be back for showdowns with No. 9 Penn State and No. 14 Michigan to end the regular season.
No. 3 Ohio State announced the day before its game last week with Maryland that Young would be held out amid concerns he violated NCAA rules by taking a loan last year from someone he describes as a “family friend.”
Young explained his ”mistake” in a tweet and said the loan had been repaid.
Ohio State had sought immediate reinstatement.
