Ohio State kicks off its 2020 college football season at home against Nebraska on Saturday, Oct. 24. The Buckeyes come into the game as the highest ranked Big Ten team, in spite of not playing the first seven weeks of the season. OSU won its 2019 matchup 48-7 over the Huskers behind three touchdowns from quarterback Justin Fields. The junior finished third a year ago in Heisman Trophy voting and will look to kick off his 2020 campaign with a strong start against Nebraska.
OSU comes into the 2020 college football season with some unfinished business. After an unbeaten regular season, the Buckeyes were stunned in the closing minutes of their College Football Playoff Semifinal loss to Clemson. OSU started at No. 2 in the 2020 preseason AP poll before falling out ahead of the Big Ten’s decision to bring football back this fall. With eight games in eight weeks, Ohio State will look to climb back towards the top of the rankings while making a run at the program’s fourth CFP bid.
Here is the complete 2020 Ohio State football schedule, including opponents, results and players to watch.
