CHICAGO (AP) — Ohio State will face one of its toughest tests of the season without its best defensive player and three talented receivers.

The Buckeyes suspended All-America defensive end Joey Bosa, receiver Corey Smith and H-backs Jalin Marshall and Dontre Wilson for their opening game at Virginia Tech because of unspecified violation of athletic department policies.
