The Dayton Flyers arrived in Indy about 7:20 last night after a relaxed and largely quiet bus ride over.
The team is working out this afternoon at Indianapolis University, the site of two “secret” scrimmages in 2014 against Illinois and 2015 vs Purdue.
This year’s “secret” scrimmage against Marquette was at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Dayton won its only real game in that building, beating Purdue 83-72 on December 15, 2001.

Ohio State football was always going to be favored in Week 1 of 2018. The first odds are out for the Buckeyes’ game against Oregon State, and oddsmakers aren’t optimistic about the Beavers ability to make it close.
Ohio State opened as over a 30-point favorite against the Beavers, per one oddsmaker 5Dimes. 247Sports reports 5Dimes has the Buckeyes as 30.5-point favorites, and ElevenWarriors reports the number is 31.
Ohio State does head into this game returning a bunch of talent from last year’s team that finished just outside the College Football Playoff field, while Oregon State is rebuilding with a new coach after parting with Gary Andersen partway through the 2017 season, which the Beavers finished at 1-11. Jonathan Smith comes over to take the reigns after serving as Washington’s offensive coordinator.
The Buckeyes host the Beavers on Saturday, Sept 1., at Ohio Stadium.

Kevin Sumlin was officially hired as Arizona’s new head coach on Sunday. And he was scheduled to be introduced at a press conference on Tuesday.
But before Sumlin took the podium for the first time in his new role, the terms of his contract with the Wildcats were reported by college football writer Brett McMurphy.
According to McMurphy, the former Texas A&M coach has signed a five-year, $14.5 million contract with Arizona. Sumlin will receive $2 million each of the first two years, then $3.5 million each of the final three years.
Once approved by Arizona Board of Regents, Kevin Sumlin will receive 5-year, $14.5M contract. Initial base pay would be $2M per year during first 2 years of contract & increase to $3.5M per year during years 3 thru 5

Along with his buyout from his contract with the Aggies, Sumlin has become a wealthier man in recent months. Texas A&M paid Sumlin $10.4 million after he was fired.
Sumlin was fired by Texas A&M in November after going 51-26 over six seasons with the Aggies. He owns an 86-43 career record as a head coach, which also includes a four-year stint at Houston.
With the Wildcats, Sumlin will try to improve a program that just went 7-6 and lost four of its last five games this past season.
