The Ohio State Buckeyes are continuing their work on future football schedules, as they announced on Thursday morning that the Toledo Rockets have been added to the 2022 slate of non-conference games.
The Toledo matchup comes on Sept. 17, 2022, two weeks after the Buckeyes open with Notre Dame. Both of those games will be taking place in Ohio Stadium, but times have not yet been determined.
“We are very pleased to add Ohio State to our non-conference football schedule in 2022,” said UT vice president and athletic director Mike O’Brien. “Ohio State has one of the richest histories in college football and will be an exciting challenge for our program.”
There is still one more open slot (Sept. 10, 2022) on OSU’s non-conference schedule that season. With only Notre Dame scheduled in 2023, there is a chance that a home-and-home series could take place between the Buckeyes and their would-be opponent.
In the three prior meetings with Toledo, the Buckeyes came out victorious. The last time these programs met was in 2011, with the Scarlet and Gray narrowly avoiding the upset with a 27-22 win. Before that, the Buckeyes shut out the Rockets in both the 2009 and 1998 meetings.
