Ohio State announced several football scheduling updates on Wednesday, making changes to the slate for the 2024 and 2029 seasons.

Starting in 2024, Ohio State is moving a previously scheduled matchup with Western Michigan on Sept. 21, 2024, to Sept. 7, 2024, and replacing that original date with newly announced game against Marshall. Along with a previously scheduled date with Southern Miss on Aug. 31, 2024, that completes Ohio State’s non conference schedule for the 2024 season.

Aug. 31vs. Southern Miss
Sept. 7vs. Western Michigan
Sept. 21vs. Marshall

The Buckeyes hold a 1-0 record against both Western Michigan and Marshall, both wins at Ohio Stadium. Ohio State defeated Marshall 24-21 on Sept. 11, 2004, and also had a 45-7 victory on Sept. 2, 2010, but that win was later vacated. The Thunder Herd played their first season in the Sun Belt last year, and Ohio State holds an all-time 2-0 record against teams from that conference.

The Buckeyes’ lone game against the Broncos was a 38-12 win on Sept. 26, 2015. Ohio State has a perfect 29-0 record against competition from the Mid-American Conference.

Ohio State also announced a new pair of nonconference matchups for the 2029 season, with the Buckeyes set to host Nevada on Sept. 1, 2029, and Charlotte on Sept. 8, 2029. These are the first nonconference games announced for Ohio State’s 2029 football slate.

This will be the first time Ohio State has faced either program, with the Buckeyes holding a 6-0 record against Nevada’s Mountain West Conference and a 14-2 record against Charlotte’s American Athletic Conference, with losses coming against Syracuse in 1992 and Miami (Fla.) in 1999.

Other notable nonconference matchups in the next few years is a home-and-home with Texas in 2025-26, Alabama in 2027-28, Georgia in 2030-31 and Oregon in 2032-33.
