The Big Ten schedules for the next four seasons were released Tuesday, nearly completing Ohio State’s full schedules up to 2021. A pair of nonconference matchups in 2020 and 2021 remain the only two yet-to-be determined opponents for the Buckeyes.

Ohio State will only play games on Saturdays for every game announced through 2027, unlike 2017 when Ohio State had opened up on the road against Indiana on a Thursday. And in 2021, Ohio State’s first game will be on the road against Big Ten opponent Minnesota, the team’s only scheduled conference matchup to start a season.

Nebraska is scheduled to play Ohio State every year from last season’s matchup in Columbus and 2021, marking six straight seasons the two teams will match up against one another. Ohio State won last season’s game 62-3 and is scheduled to travel to Lincoln, Nebraska, on Oct. 14.

Ohio State also will play host to Iowa in 2020, which will be the Hawkeyes’ second visit to Columbus since 2013.
