Ohio State Announces New Non-Conference Games & Date Change

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio State University Department of Athletics has scheduled three non-conference football games at Ohio Stadium, including one in the 2024 season and two in 2029, and changed the date of an existing non-conference game in 2024, as well.

The scheduling agreements include:

  • A date change for the 2024 Western Michigan game from Sept. 21 to Sept. 7;
  • Adding a game against Marshall on Sept. 21, 2024;
  • Adding a game against Nevada on Sept. 1, 2029; and
  • Adding a game against Charlotte on Sept. 8, 2029.

Ohio State and Marshall have met twice previously on the gridiron: in 2004, Ohio State needed a Mike Nugent 55-yard field goal as time expired to win, 24-21; and in 2010 Ohio State defeated Marshall, 45-7, in the first regular season weeknight game – Thursday evening – for Ohio State since 1997.

The Buckeyes and Broncos of Western Michigan have played once, a 38-12 Ohio State win at Ohio Stadium in the 2015 season.

The games against Nevada and Charlotte will represent first-time opponents for Ohio State football.

2024 Schedule

The Big Ten Conference will announce the 2024 football schedule this fall. Ohio State’s non-conference portion of 2024 is set: Aug. 31 vs. Southern Mississippi; Sept. 7 vs. Western Michigan; Sept. 21 vs. Marshall. All three games will be played at Ohio Stadium.
