COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio State University official is warning students that they could risk being cut from courses if they skip class for the Buckeyes’ championship matchup against Oregon.

The nighttime game happens Monday, on the first day of spring semester.

The vice provost for undergraduate studies, Wayne Carlson, sent students an email this week that says it’s up to professors to decide whether traveling to the game in Dallas is an acceptable excuse for students to miss classes Monday or Tuesday. If absences aren’t cleared with an instructor, students absent during the first week could be taken off a class roster.

Carlson says the school appreciates loyalty to the football team but doesn’t want that to negatively affect students’ academic progress.
