Ohio State donates to Hurricane Harvey relief

Buckeyes to wear special helmet decal against Indiana

Tonight in Bloomington, Ohio State will take on Indiana in the first game of the college football season. Meanwhile, the greater Houston area is recovering from the devastation of Hurricane Harvey, and the Buckeyes are lending a hand.

According to Eleven Warriors, Coach Urban Meyer announced on Wednesday morning that his program, "driven by the wishes of his players and support from his coaching staff, will donate $10,000 to the American Red Cross for its Hurricane Harvey disaster relief efforts."

Ohio State's rosters includes seven players from the great state of Texas:

J.T. Barrett (QB) of Wichita Falls

Baron Browning (LB) of Fort Worth

J.K. Dobbins (RB) of La Grange

Elijah Gardiner (WR) of Kemp

Demetrius Knox (OT) of Fort Worth

Jeffrey Okudah (CB) of Grand Prairie

Kendall Sheffield (CB) of Missouri City

Ohio State and Indiana will also wear a special helmet decal in support of relief efforts during their sellout primetime game. The decal will read, "Houston Strong," according to Brett MCMurphy, a College Football Insider reporter.

Visit the American Red Cross in order to contribute to the relief fund and help those affected by Hurricane Harvey.
