Ohio State announces football schedule changes and additions


COLUMBUS, Ohio – There was a considerable amount of news Thursday regarding future Ohio State football schedules, including a series change that has the Buckeyes travelling next year to Arlington, Texas, and AT&T Stadium, site of the team’s 2015 College Football Playoff championship game win over Oregon. The opponent will be TCU.

Ohio State and TCU have modified their two-game series into one game that will take place Sept. 15, 2018 at AT&T Stadium. The teams will not meet in 2019.

The agreement calls for both schools to receive $5 million. The Sept. 21, 2019 game with TCU, scheduled before the 2019 Big Ten schedule was released, will be replaced with a home game against the Miami Redhawks in the middle of a challenging pair of road games: at Indiana Sept. 14 and at Nebraska Sept. 28.

Miami and Ohio State will meet for only the sixth time with the last meeting – Sept. 1, 2012 – representing the first game for Urban Meyer as Ohio State head coach: a 56-10 Buckeye win.

Scheduled: Ohio State vs. Washington

Ohio State has a two-game series with the Pac-12’s Washington Huskies set. The two teams, each of whom were College Football Playoff semifinalists this past season, will play Sept. 7, 2024 at Husky Stadium in Seattle, with the return game set for Sept. 13, 2025 at Ohio Stadium.

Washington is the latest in an impressive slate of home-and-home series Ohio State has scheduled against Power 5 schools, including with:

Oklahoma (2016 and 2017);

Oregon (2020 and 2021);

Notre Dame (2022 and 2023);

Texas (2022 and 2023);

Washington (2024 and 2025); and

Boston College (2026 and 2027).

BC Games Moved

The Buckeyes were previously scheduled to play Boston College in a home-and-home series in 2023 and 2024, but those games have been moved to the 2026 and 2027 seasons. Ohio State will play host to Boston College on Sept. 19, 2026, and travel to Chestnut Hill, Mass., for a game on Sept. 18, 2027.

Games with Bowling Green & Tulsa Added

Ohio State has also added two non-conference home games to its future slate of games:

Ohio State will host Bowling Green on Sept. 5, 2020; and

Ohio State will host Tulsa on Sept. 18, 2021.

Ohio State has complete schedules for the next three seasons, up through 2019.

2017 Note: A Big Ten Conference representative said yesterday that game times and television network carriers will be known by May 31 for games the first three weeks of the season and Homecoming.
