Ohio State is set to play in Fox's national noon game of the week once again.
The Buckeyes' Nov. 9 home game against Maryland will kick off at noon at Ohio Stadium and will be televised on Fox, the Big Ten announced Monday.
Next week's game will mark the fourth time this year that Ohio State has been Fox's national noon game of the week, reflecting the Buckeyes' status as one of the nation's biggest television draws and Fox's new Big Noon Saturday strategy of televising its game of the week at noon each Saturday.
It will be the fifth overall noon game for Ohio State this season. The Buckeyes' first three games of the season against Florida Atlantic (Fox), Cincinnati (ABC) and Indiana (Fox) were all noon games, as was last week's game against Wisconsin (Fox). Ohio State's final game of the regular season at Michigan, of course, is already scheduled for noon on Fox.
Coming off their second and final bye week of the regular season, next week's game will be the Buckeyes' second-to-last home game of the year.
