The Ohio State Buckeyes have made several changes to their future football schedules, Director of Athletics Gene Smith announced today.
Ohio State has added a game against the Florida A&M Rattlers at Ohio Stadium on Sept. 7, 2013. The game will be the first ever between the two schools.
The Buckeyes will begin a home-and-home series with the North Carolina Tar Heels on Sept. 5, 2015 at Ohio Stadium. Ohio State will then travel to face UNC in Chapel Hill on Sept. 23, 2017.
Ohio State is 3-1 all-time against North Carolina. The two schools last met in 1975 in Columbus. The Buckeye won that game 32-7.
Gene Smith also announced today that due to the Big Ten’s decision to play a nine-game conference schedule beginning in 2017, the Buckeyes have canceled a 2018-19 home-and-home series with the Tennessee Volunteers.
