We knew the date and now we know the time.
It's official: Ohio State will kick off its season opener against Nebraska at noon on Oct. 24. The Cornhuskers' official Twitter account confirmed the time on Tuesday afternoon.
The Big Ten showdown will be broadcasted on FOX.
Over the past few years, the Buckeyes have become especially familiar with the noon timeslot. Recently, FOX began scheduling its premier matchups to begin in the early afternoon following their pregame show, Big Noon Kickoff, which features Urban Meyer – along with Rob Stone, Brady Quinn, Matt Leinart and Reggie Bush – as a panelist.
The Ohio State-Nebraska announcement also confirms the game will be held on Oct. 24. The initial schedule release from the Buckeyes did not rule out the game being played on Oct. 23 – a Friday.
No kickoff times for any other games have been announced yet.
