COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — The Ohio State Buckeyes will play one of its home Big Ten games in primetime on NBC4.
The Buckeyes will host the Michigan State Spartans at Ohio Stadium on Nov. 11 at 7:30 p.m. on NBC4. Last season, Ohio State beat Michigan State 49-20 in East Lansing and has not lost to the Spartans since 2015.
Meanwhile, Ohio State will be on the road November 25 at 12:00 p.m. against Michigan on FOX as the Buckeyes look to snap a two-game losing streak to their rivals up north.
The Veterans Day contest against Michigan State is the 100th announced night game in Ohio State football history. The Buckeyes are 71-29 all-time in games kicking off after 5 p.m. At least two Ohio State games will be exclusively on NBC4 with the Buckeyes contest against Notre Dame on Sept. 23 also set to be on NBC4 due to a longtime deal between that school and NBC.
The last Buckeye game to air on NBC was 27 years ago when OSU beat Notre Dame 19-16 in 1996. Ohio State begins its season on Sept. 2 on the road against the Indiana Hoosiers.
Buckeye football on NBC4 will also be coupled with NFL action as 2023 begins a double dose of primetime weekend football with Big Ten games on Saturdays and the NFL’s weekly Sunday Night Football game. NBC4 will also be the home for the 2023 NFL season opener as the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs host the Detroit Lions on Sept. 7.
