Ohio State Football Schedule What To Know: Who do the Buckeyes miss from the Big Ten West Division?
It’s Ohio State so it’s not going to freak out about playing anyone, but having to play defending West champ Iowa and having to play Wisconsin isn’t a the best of breaks. However, both games are at home, and having to go on the road to face Northwestern shouldn’t be an issue.
In division play, they have to go to Michigan State and Penn State, but the date with Michigan is back in Columbus this time around.
Ohio State Football Schedule What To Know: Get rolling early and own home field
There can be a misfire on the road against Penn State or Michigan State and be okay as long as Ohio State dominates at home.
Notre Dame, Wisconsin, Iowa, Michigan – all four should be in the preseason top 25 – and maybe flirt with the top 15 – but again, they’re all home games. Starting out with five straight in Ohio Stadium should be just the warmup for the run of four road trips in six dates.
Ohio State Football Schedule What To Know: What does it all really mean?
To keep hammering this home, it’s not all that bad as long as everything works out early and as long as any mistakes come on the road. As long as there’s a win over the Irish in the opener, the tone should be set the rest of the way.
It’s Ohio State, so it’s College Football Playoff or bust. For almost anyone else this slate would be a forget-about-it-killer. For this program, 11-1 is more than possible.
