FOUR BUCKEYES WILL BE IN ACTION DURING TONIGHT'S BIG 33 CLASSIC

HERSHEY, Pa. — When the 53rd annual Big 33 Football Classic gets underway tonight in Hershey (Pa.), Ohio State fans will get an opportunity to see four future Buckeyes in action.

OSU class of 2010 signees, Christian Bryant (CB, Glenville/Cleveland), Verlon Reed (QB, S, Marion-Franklin/Columbus), J.T. Moore (DE, Boardman/Youngstown) and Darryl Baldwin (DE, Solon), will all represent the Buckeyes on the Ohio squad tonight, as they go up against a team of all stars from Pennsylvania.

Ohio defeated Pennsylvania 38-31 during last year's showdown.

The Big 33 classic has been one of the best showcases of high school talent for the past several decades. Pro Football Hall of Famers, Joe Montana, Joe Namath, Dan Marino, Tony Dorsett and Jim Kelly have all participated in this prestigious interstate tilt. Of course, the most memorable Big 33 alumnus for Buckeye fans would be two-time Heisman Trophy winning running back, Archie Griffin.

Kickoff for the Big 33 Football Classic is set for tonight at 7 p.m. and can be seen on the NFL Network.
