Homecoming Game Versus Rutgers to Kick Off at 3:30 p.m.

By Kyle Rowland on May 13, 2014 at 9:55a

Six down, six to go. Another Ohio State game time was announced Tuesday. 

At the Big Ten's spring meetings, athletic directors set times for homecoming games, with the ESPN Big Ten Blog reporting Ohio State-Rutgers, scheduled for Oct. 18, will kick off at 3:30 p.m. TV networks have not been announced. 

The Buckeyes begin the season on the road —in Baltimore — against Navy. That game will begin at noon and be televised by CBS Sports Network. Ohio State has a record four night games schedule, including three in Ohio Stadium. The Sept. 6 home-opener against Virginia Tech is at 8 p.m., three weeks later — Sept. 27 — the Buckeyes host Cincinnati at 6 p.m., and on Nov. 1 Ohio State hosts the first night game in school history against Illinois at 8 p.m.

The lone road night game is Oct. 25 at Penn State at 8 p.m.

I thought it was funny we got to break in Nebraska too.  I feel Rutgers is in for a rude awakening even with our inexperienced O-line.


Go Bucks!

When it was scheduled we were the big dogs of the B1G.  They just got lucky to catch us between coaches. Think we blow a 21 point lead with The Senator or Corch at the helm?


Go Bucks!

This would be a great opportunity for the powers-that-be to take new and stunning photos of the Shoe because everything in the stadium will be Scarlet on a background of Gray.  Let it Be done.

Go Bucks!

It would be really awesome if they just spent the money for like scarlet and grey t-shirts for every seat and did something really cool like section by section or even little blocks of scarlet and grey all over the place would be cool.  instead of just sending out emails saying ok if ur sitting here wear this color bc people don't listen or some don't get the emails or know what color they are supposed to wear

I don't know what CBS Sports Network is, but according to their website I don't get it.  Outstanding, who the hell wanted to watch the first game of the season anyway.

Another great game time for recruiting love it. 

We were born to love Ohio State and hate that team up north.

Oh man, pretty sure I know why the game is later...

So the Bada Bing will be open and have this game fired up on all of their big screens!  You know Tony loves his Rutgers.

I know the sign says "Open for Lunch at 11" but wall all know that the crew doesnt roll in until after 3pm.

With what has been going on with Franklin, the Penn State game is going to be absolute insanity.

The only good thing that has happened since Franklin has been there is that they have a good recruiting class coming in 2015.

They are still short handed and still have mediocre (by PSU/OSU standards) players.

OSU 56-6

Roll out the red carpet to usher more mediocrity into the B1G...

what are the odds Maryland or Rutgers surprises everyone and is decent enough to make a bowl?  Purdue will beat one of these two juggernauts

Forget night games. 3:30pm is prime.

Soo I think the real question here is, should I pencil in E2B for this game or what?

I know there's a game Saturday, and my ass will be there.
