COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — A third Ohio State football game looks to have been scheduled in primetime on NBC4.
Brett McMurphy of Action Network HQ reported Wednesday that an Oct. 28 game at Wisconsin will kick off at 7:30 p.m. and air on NBC4. The Buckeyes will have at least two other games in primetime on NBC4: Sept. 23 at Notre Dame and Nov. 11 vs. Michigan State.
An Ohio State representative said the kickoff time has not been officially confirmed with the school.
Wisconsin is under new coach Luke Fickell, who comes to Madison from Cincinnati after guiding the Bearcats to the College Football Playoff in 2021. The Badgers have not beaten the Buckeyes since 2010. Fickell is a Columbus native and former Ohio State player, assistant coach and head coach.
This leaves four Ohio State games without confirmed kickoff times. They include Oct. 14 at. Purdue, Oct. 21 vs. Penn State, Nov. 4 at. Rutgers and Nov. 18 vs. Minnesota.
