Heat Cancels Ohio State Football Practice

UPDATED: Saturday August 21, 2010 8:34 AM

Ohio State football coaches canceled one of their two scheduled practices because of Friday's heat and high humidity levels.

A university spokeswoman said that the team's trainers recommended to cancel the first practice because of temperatures in the 90s and high humidity levels.  Much of central Ohio was placed under an air quality alert on Friday, meaning that children, the elderly and sensitive groups should stay inside.

The team was planning to practice in the afternoon, 10TV's Dan Fronczak reported.
