ATHENS, Ohio -- Now it feels like football season.

The shoulder pads came on for the first time during Ohio football's 2018 fall camp today as the Bobcats held their third preseason practice inside Walter Fieldhouse.

Jake Hromada and the OhioBobcatTV crew chatted with redshirt senior safety Kylan Nelson (Lexington, Ky.) after practice. The co-captain touched on a number of different subjects, including his role as a team leader, the team's status as favorite to win the Mid-American Conference and the defense's new 'Turnover Belt'.

Last season, Nelson piled up 53 total tackles, broke up eight passes and recovered a fumble over 13 games.

Ohio will open the 2018 season on Sept. 1 with a 2 p.m. ET matchup against Howard at Peden Stadium. The contest will be broadcast on ESPN+. Click here for ticket information or call 1-800-575-CATS (2287).
