2017 is the first season of nine conference games for Ohio State football and that has had an impact on the schedule.

For starters, the Buckeyes open the season with a rare road opener on August 31 at Indiana. Making it even more rare is that it is scheduled for a Thursday night, which will put that game and the young Buckeyes in the national spotlight in the very first week of the season.

Just 10 days later on September 9 the Buckeyes will host Oklahoma in what will be one of the marquee intersectional matchups of the 2017 football season. The highly-ranked Sooners will be looking for revenge for the home loss the young Buckeye football team laid on them last year in Norman, Oklahoma. The non-conference schedule also features home games with Army on September 16 and UNLV on September 23.

The conference schedule is challenging. Home dates with Penn State and Michigan State will be anything but easy. Road games at Iowa, Nebraska, and Michigan will likely be make-or-break dates for Ohio State’s conference title hopes. OSU’s Big Ten divisional crossover games of Illinois, Nebraska, and Iowa were in no way a favor by the conference schedule makers.

Ohio State will conclude the regular season with their traditional clash with the Michigan Wolverines. The Buckeyes hope to finish Big Ten play with an appearance in the conference title game, to be played at Lucas Oil Field in Indianapolis, Indiana.
