COLUMBUS— The Ohio State Buckeyes will be playing a second team from Oklahoma during their 2016 nonconference schedule.
Tulsa will be visiting Ohio Stadium to play the Buckeyes.
Ohio State already has a game at Oklahoma set for Sept. 17, 2016.
Although Ohio State Athletic Director Gene Smith was unsure of the date assigned for the Tulsa game, it will most likely come the week before or after the Buckeyes' trip to Norman, Oklahoma.
Smith also confirmed that the one-year contract with Tulsa would pay the Golden Hurricane $1.03 million to come to Columbus.
The game was originally reported by The Tulsa World. The Golden Hurricane were scheduled to play at Oklahoma State in 2016 but pushed that game back a year to come to Ohio Stadium.
