Ohio State offensive linesman Marcus Hall walks the sidelines after being ejected during the second quarter of last Saturday's game at Michigan.
INDIANAPOLIS -- Ohio State coach Urban Meyer will not let right guard Marcus Hall start Saturday night's Big Ten championship game against No. 10 Michigan State.
Meyer said Friday that Hall would be replaced in the lineup by freshman Pat Elflein. Meyer did not say how long Hall would sit out.
The move comes less than a week after Hall was involved in a scuffle at archrival Michigan. He and kick returner Dontre Wilson were ejected from the game. Before leaving the sideline, Hall threw his helmet to the ground, then made an obscene gesture to the Wolverines fans as he walked into the tunnel.
The No. 2 Buckeyes (12-0) could reach a fourth BCS title game if they beat the Spartans (11-1) in Indianapolis.
