Ohio State will play Toledo for the fourth time when the Buckeyes host the Rockets at Ohio Stadium on Sept. 17, 2022, the two schools announced Thursday.
"We are very pleased to add Ohio State to our non-conference football schedule in 2022," Toledo athletic director Mike O'Brien said in a statement. "Ohio State has one of the richest histories in college football and will be an exciting challenge for our program. We now will be playing at Michigan State (2020), Notre Dame (2021) and Ohio State (2022) in consecutive years. We think our players and our fans are very excited to be playing in these types of environments."
Toledo will be Ohio State's third opponent of the 2022 season, and is the second opponent to be announced for the Buckeyes' 2022 schedule, which will kick off when the Buckeyes host Notre Dame on Sept. 3.
Ohio State's other non-conference game for the 2022 season, to be held on Sept. 10, is still to be determined.
The Buckeyes have won all three of their previous matchups against the Rockets. Ohio State defeated Toledo 49-0 at Ohio Stadium in 1998, 38-0 at Cleveland Browns Stadium in 2009 and 27-22 at Ohio Stadium in 2011.
It will mark the fourth straight year that the Buckeyes play a non-conference game against an in-state school from the MAC, as Ohio State is set to host Miami (Ohio) in 2019, Bowling Green in 2020 and Akron in 2021. The Buckeyes will also host another MAC school, Buffalo, in 2020.
