The Buckeyes will feature a fairly new QB during their primetime matchup in Arlington.

On September 15, 2018, the Ohio State Buckeyes will take the field in Arlington, Texas that just eight months before saw the team claim a Cotton Bowl victory over USC. This go-around in Jerry World will feature the Buckeyes taking on the TCU Horned Frogs, and kickoff is set for 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

Over the last few days, several channels have announced which big games they will be broadcasting this season — with FOX winning the lucrative Ohio State-Michigan rivalry game — and ABC snagged the primetime OSU-TCU event at the beginning of the 2018 season.

Facing the Horned Frogs on the road — I refuse to call this a neutral site game with TCU just a 23-minute drive from AT&T Stadium — will be a tough task for QB Dwayne Haskins. He proved during the 2017 Michigan game that he can step up during a big moment and still come out on top, but as the new starting quarterback for Ohio State football, there will be a lot more pressure for him to excel in his first big test.
