The 2015 and 2016 Ohio State football schedules could help decide Urban Meyer's legacy in the Scarlet & Gray.

Ohio State knows where they're headed for the 2015 and 2016 football seasons. The Big Ten released their 2015 and 2016 lots on Monday. They look as follows:

2015:

10/3 - at Purdue

10/10 - Penn State

10/17 - Michigan State

10/31 - at Minnesota

11/7 - Wisconsin

11/14 - at Illinois

11/21 - Indiana

11/28 - at Michigan

2016:

10/1 - Purdue

10/15 - at Michigan State

10/22 - Illinois

10/29 - at Penn State

11/5 - Minnesota

11/12 - at Wisconsin

11/19 - at Indiana

11/26 - Michigan

Thoughts after the jump.

Three out of five road games (including 2 straight before the UM finale) to end the 2016 season could be a real grind for the Buckeyes. While we can't and don't know what the future holds (even just 4 seasons away), at Wisconsin and against Michigan are probable to be real tests. The 2015 schedule would (absurdly prematurely) look navigable with the have's and have not's spaced fairly judiciously. It's a shame Ohio State and Nebraska won't see each other outside of a potential championship game matchup from 2013 through 2016. The Bucks also won't see Jim Tressel's old whipping boys from Evanston or perpetually trying Iowa in 2015 or 2016 outside of that possibility either.

By the way, the previously known 2013 and 2014 league schedules were:

2013:

9/28 - Wisconsin

10/5 - at Northwestern

10/19 - Iowa

10/26 - Penn State

11/2 - at Purdue

11/16 - at Illinois

11/23 - Indiana

11/30 - at Michigan

2014:

10/4 - Purdue

10/18 - at Iowa

10/25 - Northwestern

11/1 - at Wisconsin

11/8 - Illinois

11/15 - at Penn State

11/22 - at Indiana

11/29 - Michigan
