Associated Press

The Associated Press is the essential global news network, delivering accurate, insightful news from every corner of the world, 24 hours a day. Since its founding in 1846, AP has been the first to report many of history’s most important moments, and every day, AP journalists, photographers and videographers file news from the front lines of the world's biggest stories. 

AP’s reporting, photography, audio and video are published and broadcast by the world’s leading newspapers, TV channels, apps, radio stations, websites and magazines—in fact, over half the world’s population sees AP news content on any given day. 

As a leader in the field of journalism, AP fights for freedom of the press and the public’s right to know. Its reporters take great risks to file in-depth stories from countries where the press is otherwise restrained, and in the U.S., AP aggressively uses the Freedom of Information Act to advocate for transparency and accountability in government.  

With more experience reporting and delivering news than any other agency, a well-earned reputation for independence and accuracy, and a fierce commitment to the people’s right to know, AP is the definitive source for trusted news.

Lots of new Buckeyes on display in scrimmage

 
   COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Several of the early preseason publications and websites predict Ohio State should have one of the top 10 or 15 teams in the country.
 
   If the Buckeyes live up to that hype, it'll likely be because of a lot of players who are unknown to even the most rabid fans.
 
   They include receiver Johnnie Dixon, linebacker Raekwon McMillan, H-back Curtis Samuel, offensive lineman Marcelys Jones, kicker Sean Nuernberger and quarterbacks Cardale Jones, J.T. Barrett and Stephen Collier.
 
   There are even new faces coaching the new faces: defensive assistants Chris Ash and Larry Johnson.
 
   In Saturday's annual intrasquad scrimmage, many of the key players to keep an eye on are the ones who are the least familiar.
