Get here faster, football.

If you’re eagerly anticipating Ohio State’s season opener against Indiana as much as we are — sort of weird to think the first game of the year will be a conference one, huh? — have we got some news for you.

ESPN announced Thursday that the Buckeyes’ Kevin Wilson revenge tour season kickoff will get started at 8 p.m. on ESPN Thursday, August 31. The Thursday game was a known thing and obviously that would necessitate prime time, but the specific kick time and broadcast network are now set.

Wilson’s next “Remember me?” matchup comes the following week, as the Bucks play host in the return leg of a home-and-home with Bob Stoops and the Oklahoma Sooners Saturday, September 9. The Buckeyes’ new OC will take on the second of his former employers at 7:30 p.m. on ABC in a nationally broadcast contest.

As if the summer wasn’t long enough; college football come back soon.
