Boston College is back on the Buckeyes’ schedule.

Ohio State’s home-and-home series with Boston College – which was originally scheduled to be played in 2020 and 2021, later pushed back to 2023 and 2024 and then to 2026 and 2027 before it was postponed again – has now been scheduled to be played in 2035 and 2036.

The Buckeyes will host Boston College at Ohio Stadium on Sept. 15, 2035 before traveling to play the Eagles in Chestnut Hill on Sept. 13, 2036.

Boston College is one of seven teams Ohio State is now scheduled to play home-and-home series with over the next 15 years, along with Notre Dame (2022-23), Washington (2024-25), Texas (2025-26), Alabama (2027-28), Georgia (2030-31) and Oregon (2032-33).

If by chance they are both still coaching at their current schools in 2035, the Ohio State vs. BC series would be a reunion for Ryan Day and Jeff Hafley, who coached together at Ohio State during Day’s first season as the Buckeyes’ head coach in 2019, when Hafley was OSU’s co-defensive coordinator. They also previously coached together with the San Francisco 49ers in 2016. Day was previously an assistant coach at Boston College three different times, working there as a graduate assistant in 2003 and 2004, as the wide receivers coach from 2007-11 and as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2013 and 2014.

Ohio State and Boston College have played each other three times, with the Buckeyes winning all three meetings. Ohio State defeated Boston College 34-29 at Ohio Stadium in 1989, 31-10 at Alumni Stadium in 1990 and 38-6 in the 1995 Kickoff Classic in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
