Ohio State's 2019-20 schedule is set.

Less than two weeks after announcing the non-conference portion of their schedule, the Buckeyes filled out the rest with the Big Ten announcing its slate of games on Friday afternoon.

Ohio State will open the conference portion of its schedule with two games in December. First, it will take on Penn State at home on Dec. 7, and then the team will head on the road to face Minnesota on Dec. 15.

After the non-conference schedule wraps up with a game against West Virginia on Dec. 29, the Buckeyes will spend the rest of the season facing Big Ten opponents.
