But the 2019-2020 season hasn’t been forgotten—the accolades are just running a year behind. On Sunday, September 26th, the 74th Annual Tony Awards will be back, celebrating live theater. And like everything else about this year’s awards, watching the 2021 Tonys will be a little different, too. Here’s how to catch the awards and (most importantly) the performances.

The 2021 Tony Awards, which celebrate the achievements of the 2019-2020 Broadway season, will take place on Sunday, September 26th at 7 p.m. EST. This year the show will be split into two parts: The awards ceremony, and the live performances.

In an unusual move, the awards ceremony component will stream exclusively on Paramount+. Like most streaming services, they have a seven-day free trial you can take advantage of (if you haven’t already). If you’d like to follow along but don’t have a way to watch the awards, you’ll be able to get live, up-to-the-minute updates at Playbill.com/TonyAwards.

The second part of the night—“The Tony Awards Present: Broadway’s Back!”—begins at 9 p.m. EST. It will be available to stream on Paramount+, but this time, it’ll also air on CBS, meaning that people with cable or a TV antenna, or access to Hulu with Live TV, YouTube TV, DirectTV Now, or fuboTV can tune in as well.

Both McDonald and Odom Jr. will also perform in “The Tony Awards Present: Broadway’s Back!” concert, alongside other artists, including Kristin Chenoweth, André De Shields, Jake Gyllenhaal, Christopher Jackson, Idina Menzel, Ruthie Ann Miles, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Bebe Neuwirth, Kelli O’Hara, Ben Platt, Jeremy Pope, Chita Rivera, Daphne Rubin-Vega, and BD Wong.

16 Buckeyes Unavailable for Akron, Including Thayer Munford, Cameron Brown, Tyreke Smith and Taron Vincent

10TV 25 September, 2021 - 06:30pm

Expect to see young faces on the field in abundance for the Buckeyes on Saturday.

No shortage of veterans and projected starters are listed as unavailable on Ohio State’s official status report for the Akron game, with the Buckeyes’ offensive and defensive lines being hit hardest by absences.

Harry Miller is out for the fourth straight game to start the year for Ohio State, leaving redshirt freshman Luke Wypler to make another start for the Buckeyes at center, and left guard Thayer Munford will not play either after leaving last week’s Tulsa game with an apparent ankle injury

Ryan Day said this week that Munford’s injury is not long-term, and in Munford’s place against Tulsa, fourth-year guard Matt Jones stepped in and performed well enough to be the only Ohio State offensive lineman to grade out as a champion.

Larry Johnson’s defensive line has taken several hits ahead of Saturday’s Akron matchup, as starting defensive end Tyreke Smith and defensive tackle Taron Vincent will both be out, and fourth-year pass rusher Javontae Jean-Baptiste – who started in place of injured Zach Harrison last week – will not be available either. Harrison, however, is available and expected to play.

Five-star freshman defensive ends J.T. Tuimoloau and Jack Sawyer are likely candidates to see an increase in snaps in the absence of Smith and Jean-Baptiste, and Jacolbe Cowan, Cormontae Hamilton and Darrion Henry-Young should all get on the field at the position as well.

At tackle, true freshman Tyleik Williams was expected to shoulder more reps this week even before it was made public that Vincent would miss the Akron game, but Ty Hamilton and Jerron Cage are sure to be in the mix as well alongside Haskell Garrett and Antwuan Jackson at the top of the depth chart.

The Buckeye secondary will be without a starting cornerback, as redshirt junior Cameron Brown will miss a game for the second time this season, per the report. Brown, who tore his Achilles last October, missed the season opener with an undisclosed injury, and has worn a brace on his knee in each of the past two games for Ohio State. Brown is second only to true freshman Denzel Burke with five passes defended so far this season.

In place of Brown, senior Sevyn Banks could be in line to make his first start of the season after making his season debut against Tulsa. Banks started every game during the 2020 season, but missed the first two games in 2021 and played just 25 snaps behind Brown and Burke last week.

True freshmen corners Jordan Hancock and Jakailin Johnson could also see their first action as Buckeyes on Saturday, with the ladder having lost his black stripe in practice this past week.

Elsewhere on the Buckeye offense, running back Marcus Crowley will miss his second straight game after being carted off the field against Oregon following a blow to the head, and second-year wideout Julian Fleming is listed as unavailable as well.

Quarterback C.J. Stroud, who Day said will only play in emergency situations Saturday, was not listed on the report at all, indicating that he is available if needed. Linebacker Teradja Mitchell is also available to play this week after missing the Tulsa contest as a game-time decision.

Last Call: Final Thoughts, Questions and Predictions Entering Ohio State’s Non-Conference Finale Against Akron

247Sports 25 September, 2021 - 06:30pm

Ohio State's non-conference slate for the 2021 season concludes on Saturday night.

Akron doesn't hold the cachet of a typical primetime opponent for Ohio State, but nonetheless, the Buckeyes will play under the lights at Ohio Stadium on Saturday night as kickoff of their fourth game of the 2021 season – and their last of three consecutive non-conference games – is set for 7:30 p.m. at the Shoe with Big Ten Network televising.

While we await tonight's game, which will be headlined by either Kyle McCord or Jack Miller at quarterback as C.J. Stroud is expected to rest his shoulder, the Eleven Warriors staff shares some final thoughts, questions and predictions entering the Buckeyes' meeting with the Zips.

RELATED Preview: Ohio State Set to Break In Another New Quarterback in Non-Conference Finale Against Akron

Look, Akron is terrible, OK? They lost to Auburn by 50 points in their opener, showing they’re a long way away from the cream of the crop of college football. This isn’t to minimize Ohio State’s issues, of which there’s been many. It’s to say there seemingly can be no way Akron gives the Buckeyes a scare for three quarters similar to Tulsa — who mind you was a Top 25 team last year for the majority of the season — a week ago. 

But the conversation is instantly going to be on quarterbacks for another week. Will Stroud get Wally Pipp’d by Kyle McCord or Jack Miller III? Will Ryan Day stand by his QB no matter if McCord throws for 500 yards? Will Stroud’s shoulder flare up again heading into Rutgers? For a game that shouldn’t be close from kickoff, there’s suddenly lots of intrigue here.

Tulsa might be a bit better of a team that we gave the Golden Hurricane credit for going into last week's game, but there will be no spinning this one if Akron manages to somehow make it competitive with Ohio State. The Zips have won just one game against a Football Bowl Subdivision team since 2019 and are arguably one of the worst teams in the FBS.

Anything less than dominance will be a disappointment tonight for the Buckeyes, who are favored by 48.5 points even without their starting quarterback. Ohio State has yet to fully control a game this season, but there's no excuse for that not to happen against Akron. And it would certainly be in the Buckeyes' best interest to build a big lead by halftime so that they can let their backups – many of whom haven't played much or at all yet this season, and might not have many opportunities to play in Big Ten games – get some game experience.

This is Ohio State’s last chance to truly put forth an impressive, consistent showing for four quarters before it enters the Big Ten gauntlet, and Saturday should be (by far) its easiest opportunity to do so. Winning alone will not be good enough. A three-touchdown victory, as seen in last week’s uneven performance against Tulsa, will not be good enough. It’s going to take a thorough display of dominance on both sides of the ball to ease the angst of the Buckeye fan base following a sluggish start to the season, and even if this Ohio State team is not national championship material as of now, it should still be able to muster such an effort against Akron.

Unfair as the expectations may be, they are what they are at Ohio State, and if ever this Buckeyes team was to meet them, it would certainly be against a Zips program that has won just two of its past 21 games dating back to the start of 2019.

Day said Stroud would only play in an “emergency capacity” this week. What exactly does that mean? The Buckeyes unfathomably pull a Tulsa and sleepwalk through three quarters? McCord and Miller both fall flat on their face? I don’t see this being an issue, but you can’t help but wonder what would require the “break in case of an emergency” scenario. 

Attendance at Ohio Stadium for last week's game against Tulsa came in at a shockingly low number of 76,540, the lowest attendance for a game with fans at the Shoe since 1971. There's reason to believe there will be plenty of empty seats in the stands tonight, too.

The excitement of a night game might bring some people to the Shoe that weren't inclined to attend last week, while the temperature will be cooler than the 90-degree heat that kept some fans away last Saturday. A matchup with Akron isn't going to excite the casual fan, though, and it's likely that a good number of people who bought tickets for this game expecting an earlier kickoff won't be as interested in getting home late from a game against the Zips.

I don't feel confident in saying whether attendance will be higher or lower this week than it was last week, but I do anticipate that many fans who do attend the game won't stick around for the second half unless this game becomes surprisingly competitive.

All indications from Ryan Day are that C.J. Stroud is getting rest to help heal his shoulder, and not that any inconsistencies through his first three collegiate starts were egregious enough to lose his job. However, those clamoring to see what’s behind door No. 2 could realistically be treated to a monster statistical performance from Kyle McCord or Jack Miller due to Akron’s porous defense.

The Zips allowed 105 points in the first two games of the season alone, and the Buckeyes’ offense – when firing on all cylinders and potentially regardless of quarterback – should be more prolific than Auburn or Temple. Could a show-stopping first start, even against Akron, possibly be enough to make Day question Stroud’s starting status moving forward? That is my question, even if it takes until this time next week to get an answer.

McCord is a five-star prospect for a reason, and I expect him to both earn the start and light up the Zips. I can’t imagine the game plan is going to be throwing it 35-plus times considering TreVeyon Henderson just broke a school freshman running record and Akron shouldn’t be able to slow him down, but if he holds his own on the throws he’s asked to make, Tuesday’s press conference with Day should be very interesting.

Considering that Ohio State will be breaking in a new quarterback and Akron's run defense has allowed 5.4 yards per carry this season, expect the Buckeyes to pound the ball against the Zips. I anticipate we'll see two or three more big plays from Henderson tonight, but I don't think the Buckeyes will give him as many carries as they did against Tulsa as they look to keep him fresh for conference play.

So I think we'll see a healthy dose of Miyan Williams and/or Master Teague tonight, and probably a little bit of Evan Pryor too, and I'll say that both Henderson and either Williams or Teague – leaning toward Williams – runs for triple digits against the Akron defense.

Larry Johnson said Tuesday that he doesn’t sleep well when the Buckeye defensive line can’t get pressure on opposing quarterbacks, but after a closer look at Akron’s stats to start the year, I have a feeling he’ll be sleeping just fine this weekend.

The Zips gave up six sacks to Auburn Week 1, two more than Ohio State has tallied all season long, and Akron quarterbacks were sacked five more times since then in the past two games as well. Zach Harrison is back for the Buckeyes at defensive end this week, but even if he doesn’t make a huge impact on Akron’s pass attack himself, I believe some selection of Ohio State defensive linemen will. Johnson said J.T. Tuimoloau will only continue to see more snaps as the season goes on, and fellow true freshman Tyleik Williams came up with a game-changing sack just last week for the Buckeyes. 

If there’s any matchup in which piling up sacks should be feasible, it’ll be this one, and there may be many sleepless nights ahead for Johnson if his unit doesn’t manage to do so on Saturday.

Kyle McCord gets the start at quarterback for Ohio State

The Athletic 25 September, 2021 - 06:17pm

Kyle McCord will become the first true freshman to start at quarterback for Ohio State in 10 years when he takes the first snap Saturday night against Akron. McCord will start in place of C.J. Stroud, who was sidelined while resting a sore throwing shoulder.

Head coach Ryan Day said during the week that Stroud would be available only in “an emergency situation.” Stroud started the first three games of the season and took every snap against Minnesota, Oregon and Tulsa.

Ohio State will also be without several other key players today — defensive linemen Tyreke Smith, Taron Vincent and Javontae Jean-Baptiste as well as offensive lineman Thayer Munford.

McCord joins exclusive company as only the fourth true freshman to start at quarterback in program history. Art Schlichter was the first in 1978 followed by Terrelle Pryor in 2008 and Braxton Miller in 2011.

With TreVeyon Henderson getting the start at tailback, the Buckeyes will be starting an all-true freshman backfield for the first time ever.

McCord was the first five-star quarterback to sign with the Buckeyes out of high school since Miller. The product of St. Joseph’s Prep in Philadelphia was the No. 28 overall prospect in the 2021 recruiting class. He competed with Stroud and redshirt freshman Jack Miller for the starting job during fall camp.

“It’s crazy when you take a step back and look at it, see all the great players who have come through this program,” McCord said in August. “To have an opportunity to compete for the job the second you step on campus is not an opportunity a lot of guys have had. I’m excited for it. I’m excited for what the future holds.”

The future is now, or at least for one weekend, as McCord gets the chance to give Day something to think about while plotting the future of the quarterback position this season and beyond.

TreVeyon Henderson has emerged as Ohio State's best running back. But will he be Ohio State's starting running back?

Ryan Day landed his first quarterback commitment as Ohio State's head coach with a pledge from Class of 2021 prospect Kyle McCord.
