Ohio State football head coach apologized after his team went for a touchdown instead of kneeling on its final drive of a 52-17 blowout of Nebraska on Saturday.
"I feel bad about that," Day told reporters postgame, per ESPN's Adam Rittenberg.
"I had a younger quarterback in the game, and I didn't feel like we had the personnel to take the knee, and I probably should have done that. So I just want to publicly apologize to them, to [Nebraska coach] Scott [Frost]."
No. 5 Ohio State and Nebraska were tied at 14 in the second quarter, but the Buckeyes outscored the Cornhuskers 38-3 the rest of the way in a 52-17 victory at home in Columbus' Ohio Stadium.
