Some high school basketball games are being moved up by as much as two hours on Friday to make sure fans can watch their school and get home before the Buckeyes kick off against USC.
School officials say games that conflict with Ohio State football typically result in low ticket sales.
WBEX, WSRW and WCHO-AM are all broadcasting the Cotton Bowl with airtime at 7pm.
Here is a slate of scheduled local games on Friday, December 29th. If your game has been changed on time or date, email that change to firstname.lastname@example.org
