COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The Ohio High School Football Coaches Association is voicing its displeasure over the Big Ten’s decision to play some games on Friday night next year.

The group has joined prep coaches in Michigan, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa and Wisconsin in speaking out against the conference’s decision to play six games throughout the season on Friday night, which traditionally is reserved for high school football.

Matt Dennison, president of the Ohio High School Football Coaches Association, said the decision will hurt prep football, adding that “the Big Ten’s quest for money is greater than the great game of football.”

Ohio State said it is willing to host a Friday night game once every three years, but only when the Friday falls during fall break on the academic calendar.
