Ohio State's 2018-19 slate is far from finalized, but the Buckeyes are in the process of finalizing the second schedule of the Chris Holtmann era. 

On Thursday, the Buckeyes added a home game against Bucknell to its slate according to a report from Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports. 

The Bison made it to the NCAA Tournament in 2017-18, nearly pulling off the upset of Michigan State in the first round, before falling 82-78 to the Spartans. Bucknell finished last season with an overall record of 25-10, and a stellar 16-2 conference record in the Patriot League. 

Bucknell is the third team that Ohio State has scheduled for the 2018-19 non-conference season. The Buckeyes are set to open the year on the road against Cincinnati, and are also set to once again appear in the CBS Sports Classic on Dec. 22 against UCLA in Chicago.
