Ohio State-Northwestern Set For Noon Kickoff

By October 24, 2022 (11:30 am)Football

After Ohio State’s first half of the season was defined by night and late afternoon kickoffs, the Buckeyes will play in their third consecutive noon kickoff when they travel to Evanston, Ill., to take on Northwestern on Nov. 5. The game will be televised on ABC.

While the Buckeyes played in just one-noon game during their first six contests, they’re already set to triple that number during the back half of the season. Ohio State took care of business at home against Iowa, and will travel to take on Penn State this week in the same time slot.

As the Buckeyes will do battle with the Nittany Lions at noon on Saturday, Northwestern seeks to put an end to its six-game losing streak against Iowa at 3:30 p.m.

Ohio State controls the all-time series against Northwestern, holding a 64-1-14 record against the Wildcats while claiming the last nine wins — including a pair of Big Ten Championship victories in 2018 and 2020.
