Buckeyes football games play on the weekend with a fun football theme, says host
WEST BRUNSWICK, N.J. — The Buckeyes are going all-in with football games this season, and that means playing on a Saturday, which is where the game will go on the weekends this fall.
In honor of National Football League, NFL Week 8 kickoff times will be at 8:30 p.m.
ET, with the Buckeyes at home vs. Michigan State on Oct. 28, and the Ohio State-Michigan State game on Oct, 30, at 7:30 a.m., and the Wisconsin-Michigan game at 8 p.ms.
The game at Penn State on Sept. 30, 2018, will be played at noon.
The game on Saturday will be one of two games in Ohio Stadium, which has hosted games at Penn and Michigan State since it opened in 1996.
There will be two different teams on each Saturday, with two teams playing each game on a neutral field.
The home opener will be the first home game of the season for the Buckeye football team, which went 4-8 in 2016.
The Buckeye season opener is Sept. 22 at Michigan Stadium, when Ohio State hosts the Wolverines.
Ohio State’s schedule will be a little different this year than last season.
It will play eight home games on the road and four home games in neutral territory, which includes home games against Iowa, Michigan, Wisconsin, Michigan State and Penn State.
The two games on neutral turf are the Ohio Stadium opener and the home opener against Penn State in 2019.
Ohio Stadium will host four home football games on Sept 22 and a home game against Michigan State in 2021.
The Ohio Stadium opening game will be on Sept 26 against Penn.
The next three home games are against Nebraska, Maryland and Purdue, which will be playing in the East Regional.
The home opener for the home team is Sept 17 against the Penn State Scarlet Knights, and two home games will be against the Nebraska Cornhuskers and the Maryland Terrapins in 2021, 2021, 2022 and 2023.
The Buckeyes’ schedule will also be expanded with the addition of two conference games against Michigan, Penn State and Wisconsin, as well as one road game against Wisconsin and two games against Penn and Rutgers in 2019 and 2020.
