This will be the first season of Big Ten Conference competition in the new, expanded 18-team league with Oregon, UCLA, USC and Washington joining as full-time members next year.

Schedules are arranged so that each of the 18 Big Ten Conference teams will continue to play nine intraconference games per season, and teams will play every other conference opponent at least twice, and not more than three times, in a five-year period.

Back on Oct. 5 ,the Big Ten released five years’ worth of home and away opponents for all the teams, but not dates. Announcements for actual dates for future year team schedules are still to be determined.

Ohio State's 2024 season will feature eight home games at Ohio Stadium, including the 120th all-time matchup against Michigan, and four more Big Ten games: vs. Iowa, Nebraska, Purdue and Indiana. Additional home games will be against Southern Mississippi, Western Michigan and Marshall.

Big Ten away games for Ohio State in 2024 will be the Big Ten opener at Michigan State Sept. 28, and also vs. Oregon, Penn State and Northwestern.

There will be two off weeks: after Game 2 vs. Western Michigan and after Ohio State's road trip to Oregon on Oct. 12.

The 2024 season will conclude with the annual Big Ten Football Championship Game, which will feature the top two teams in the overall conference standings at the end of the regular season, with the winner earning the Big Ten Championship. Tiebreaking procedures will be announced later.   

Ohio State season ticket holders for the 2023 season will be able to start renewing season tickets for the 2024 season in November. Those interested in becoming season ticket holders or learning more about other ticket packages for the 2024 season should visit
