The 2015 Big Ten football schedule was announced today. It features the same teams from the 2014 schedule, just flipping the venues from home to away and vise versa.
Ohio State’s home games are against Maryland, Penn State, Minnesota and Michigan State. The Buckeyes travel to Indiana, Rutgers, Illinois and Michigan. Non-conference games in 2015. The first road trip to Rutgers will take place on Oct. 24.
Gene Smith has indicated that Ohio State will never play less than seven home games in a season, so that means the remaining non-conference game will be at home with the Buckeyes traveling to Blacksburg to take on Virginia Tech. One of the two remaining openings will be a game with the other being a bye.
Big Ten teams Ohio State will not play in the 2015 regular season: Iowa, Nebraska, Northwestern, Purdue and Wisconsin.
EDIT 10:54 a.m.: An oversight --- Ohio State's 2015 game with North Carolina was moved to 2018, so that leaves two open dates for the Buckeyes.
