Fox's Big Noon Kickoff pregame show will be extended an extra hour ahead of what could be a matchup between two College Football Playoff contenders. The show will begin outside of Ohio Stadium, near the entrance of the Recreation and Physical Activity Center (RPAC), at 10 a.m. before moving inside the Shoe for the final hour before kickoff.
This means former Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer – along with Big Noon Kickoff co-hosts Rob Stone, Brady Quinn, Matt Leinart and Reggie Bush – will be back in the 'Shoe for the second time this season, as Big Noon Kickoff was also on site for the Buckeyes' noon game against Wisconsin on Oct. 26.
Gus Johnson, Joel Klatt and Jenny Taft will be on the call for the game broadcast.
Big Ten Network's BTN Tailgate, hosted by Dave Revsine, Gerry DiNardo, Howard Griffith and Michelle McMahon, will broadcast live from outside Ohio Stadium beginning at 10 a.m. on Nov. 23.
Ohio State will play at least seven noon games this season. The Buckeyes have already played four noon games this season (Florida Atlantic, Cincinnati, Indiana and Wisconsin), this Saturday's game against Maryland will kick off at noon and the Michigan game, as always, will kick off at noon. Kickoff time will not be announced until this weekend for Ohio State's game against Rutgers next week, but that game will kick off at either noon, 3:30 p.m. or 4 p.m. next Saturday.
