Ohio State Buckeyes Will Play 5 Primetime Games This Season


The Ohio State Buckeyes hope they are ready for primetime this year. 

That’s because a record five games will be played at night.

The latest game on the schedule getting bumped to a 8 p.m. kickoff is the November 8 meeting with Michigan State in East Lansing.

OSU has three home night games this year and now two on the road.

Ohio State is officially 39-22 in night games (those starting after 5 p.m. local time). Ohio State is 29-19 in night games played on the road (20-10) or at a neutral site (9-9), and 10-3 in Ohio Stadium night games. (Records reflect vacated night game wins in 2010: Marshall, at Minnesota and vs. Arkansas).
