Following this Wednesday's announcement that the Big Ten football conference will have a 2020 season this fall, Ohio State's new season schedule was released featuring various marquee matchups.

The schedule consists of an eight-game slate of conference-only games, but no kickoff times have been announced yet.

Ohio State finished 13-1 last season as they won the Big Ten Championship before falling to the Clemson Tigers in the 2020 College Football Playoff Semifinal. They enter this season ranked No. 2 in the preseason AP Top-25 Poll and are expected to compete for a national title once again behind star QB Justin Fields.

The Big Ten has multiple playoff contenders this year, including the Penn State Nittany Lions and Michigan Wolverines. For Ohio State, they travel to take on Penn State on October 31st and face Michigan at home during the last week of the regular season on December 12 in what could be their two biggest games of the season.

The Big Ten will require student-athletes, coaches, trainers, and anyone else involved in the program to undergo daily testing to ensure everyone's safety. These tests will need to be completed before every practice or game.

Ohio State kicks off the season on Saturday, October 24, when they host the Nebraska Cornhuskers.
