Ohio State changes Sept. 20 game with Va. Tech to accommodate ESPN


COLUMBUS — Ohio State's showcase nonconference home game against Virginia Tech next season has been pushed up from Sept. 20 to Sept. 6, the school announced today.

The move was prodded by ESPN with the expectation the game will be a 3:30 p.m. or primetime broadcast.

The Buckeyes open next year Aug. 30 against Navy at Baltimore's M&T Bank Stadium. Their nonconference schedule also includes home games against Kent State on Sept. 13 and Cincinnati on Sept. 27. Sept. 20 will now be a bye week.
