Ohio State announces series against Texas
OCT 10, 2012 5:34p ET
It's a continued response to major-college programs upgrading their opponents to improve their strength of schedule in the new playoff system still being finalized.
The games will be played Sept. 17, 2022, in Texas Stadium and Sept. 16, 2023, in Ohio Stadium. The schools have met three times previously -- a home-and-home arrangement in 2005 and 2006, and in the 2009 Fiesta Bowl -- with Texas holding a 2-1 edge.
Ohio State AD Gene Smith said playing teams of Texas' caliber "creates remarkable experiences for our players and fans."
