The kickoff times are set for four of Ohio State’s first five games of the 2022 season.
While we already knew Ohio State’s season opener against Notre Dame would kick off at 7:30 p.m. on ABC, the Big Ten announced kickoff times Thursday for three more of Ohio State’s early-season games, all at home.
Ohio State’s second game of the season against Arkansas State on Sept. 10 will kick off at noon on Big Ten Network, its third game of the season against Toledo on Sept. 17 will kick off at 7 p.m. on FOX and its fifth game of the season against Rutgers on Oct. 1 will kick off at 3:30 p.m. on a network to be determined.
The Buckeyes’ fourth game of the season against Wisconsin on Sept. 24, also at home, will be televised by ABC but a kickoff time has not yet been determined. Ohio State’s regular-season finale against Michigan on Nov. 26 will kick off at noon and will be televised on Fox, while the Big Ten Championship Game on Dec. 3 will kick off at 8 p.m. on FOX.

The 7 p.m. game against Toledo at the Shoe will be Toledo’s first-ever game on a national broadcast network. It will also be Ohio State’s second home night game of the year, marking the second year in a row that Ohio State plays at least two home night games, as the Buckeyes played both Akron and Penn State at 7:30 p.m. last year.
It will be the first time Ohio State has played two home night games in September since 2014, when the Buckeyes hosted both Virginia Tech and Cincinnati under the lights.
