Buckeyes First Two In National Prime Time Spotlight


As you might expect, the 2017 Ohio State Football Buckeyes will get plenty of national exposure and it will start in week one. The Big Ten on Thursday, announced kickoff times and TV details for the Buckeyes first two games and both will be at night and both will be nationally televised.

Game one, on Thursday night, August 31 at Indiana will start at 8 p.m. on ESPN. Game two, the much anticipated home game with Oklahoma September 9, kicks off at 7:30 p.m. on ABC.  

Officially, no other kickoff times have been released, however the news leaked last week that the Ohio State home game October 28 vs. Penn State would be another prime-time affair, televised by Fox. The annual showdown with Michigan, November 25 in Ann Arbor will also be televised by Fox, likely starting at noon.
