According to a report from, Ohio State will host Ohio University on Sept. 13, 2025, with the Buckeyes paying the Bobcats $1.9 million for the non-conference matchup at Ohio Stadium.

This will be the eighth time that Ohio State and Ohio have played, with the most recent a 43-7 win for Ohio State on Sept. 18, 2010, though the game was later vacated, leaving the Buckeyes with a 6-0 record over the Bobcats. They first played on Oct. 21, 1899, with all games played at home for Ohio State.

This tentatively completes Ohio State’s non-conference schedule for the 2025 season, with home games previously announced against Texas on Aug. 30, 2025, and UConn on Oct. 18, 2025. The Big Ten had previously announced the Buckeyes’ set of conference opponents for that season – as well as 2024 – but those are likely to be adjusted following the Big Ten’s inclusion of Oregon and Washington.
