COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Gov. John Kasich (KAY-sik) says he’s all for Ohio State, but don’t expect him to move his inauguration events if the football team makes it to the national championship game.

The Republican governor’s swearing-in ceremony is planned for 11:30 a.m. on Jan. 12 at the Southern Theater in Columbus, with a gala scheduled in the evening.

Should the Ohio State Buckeyes defeat No. 1 Alabama in the Sugar Bowl, the team would play that night in the championship game in Texas.

If that’s the case, Kasich said, he would not change his events but attendees could expect access to big-screen TVs.

Kasich joked that if he’s the only person there with his wife, “it’ll be OK.” He says he hopes his kids would still come.
