Ohio State's 2024 and 2025 Big Ten games announced; conference divisions eliminated

The 2024 football season will feature the elimination of divisions in the Big Ten Conference.

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Opponents for the 2024 and 2025 Big Ten football seasons were announced by the conference on Thursday. 

The 2024 Ohio State season will feature eight home games at Ohio Stadium, including the 120th all-time matchup against Michigan. The Buckeyes will also face Illinois, Iowa, Northwestern and Rutgers at home.

Ohio State's 2024 away games in the conference include Michigan State, Minnesota, Penn State and UCLA. 

The Big Ten also announced Thursday that the 2024 season will feature the elimination of divisions within the conference. All 16 teams, which includes new additions UCLA and USC, will play a nine-game conference season. 

The new model has every team playing every other conference opponent at least twice – once home and once away – in a four-year period. 

Also new in the 2024 season, the Big Ten Conference championship game will match the top two teams in the overall conference standings.

The Buckeyes' 2025 season will kick off against Texas in Ohio Stadium on Aug. 30, and it will also feature the first visit to Ohio Stadium by the USC Trojans since the 2009 season.

Ohio State’s 2025 home schedule also includes Big Ten games against Indiana, Maryland and Nebraska, and a non-conference game against UConn.

Away games for Ohio State in 2025 will be at Illinois, Michigan, Northwestern, Purdue and Wisconsin.
