COLUMBUS, OHIO (AP) - The NCAA has sent questions to Ohio State regarding three Buckeyes football players suspended for accepting $200 for attending a charity event, and the university has responded with some answers.

NCAA spokeswoman Stacey Osburn says in an email response to The Associated Press that Ohio State is still pulling information to answer all of the NCAA’s questions.

Cornerback Travis Howard, safety Corey “Pittsburgh” Brown and running back Jordan Hall have sat out the first two games after they admitted breaking NCAA rules by accepting cash for going to a charity event in Cleveland earlier this year _ after several other teammates were suspended for accepting improper benefits from a tattoo-parlor owner.

The 17th-ranked Buckeyes have seven top players suspended heading into Saturday’s game at Miami.
