Ohio State is set to play back-to-back night games.

Ohio State's Nov. 7 game against Rutgers, its second home game of the year and third game of the season overall, will kick off at 7:30 p.m. and will be televised on Big Ten Network.

That game will serve as a return trip to Ohio State for Scarlet Knights coach Greg Schiano, who is in his first year back at Rutgers after serving as Ohio State's defensive coordinator from 2016-18. It will also be a return to Columbus for former Ohio State safety Brendon White, who is now a starter for the Scarlet Knights after leaving the Buckeyes as a graduate transfer last season.

Rutgers is 1-0 after defeating Michigan State, 38-27, in its season opener for its first win over a Big Ten opponent since 2017. The Scarlet Knights will look to keep the momentum going in what will likely be a tougher test this Saturday, when they host No. 17 Indiana in their second game of the season.

Each of Ohio State's next two games will now kick off at 7:30 p.m., as the Buckeyes are set for a primetime game on the road at Penn State this week.
