Ohio State-Maryland 2017 kickoff time.

For the first time in four seasons, Ohio State's homecoming football game will not start at noon.

The Buckeyes are set to host DJ Durkin and the Maryland Terrapins on Oct. 7 at Ohio Stadium at either 3:30 or 4 p.m., the schools announced Wednesday. Television network will be announced at a later date.

Ohio State is 3-0 all-time against Maryland since the Terrapins joined the Big Ten ahead of the 2014 season. Behind J.T. Barrett, the Buckeyes won 52-24 that year in College Park, Maryland, surged past the Terrapins the following season 49-28 at home and then roasted Durkin's team 62-3 on the road in 2016.

Maryland finished 6-7 in Durkin's first year at the helm and went 3-6 in Big Ten play. The Terrapins lost to Boston College 36-30 in the Quick Lane Bowl to close out their season.
