Good news Buckeye fans — you should be able to follow through on those weekend dinner plans in two weeks as the Big Ten has announced a 12:00 pm kickoff time for Ohio State at Northwestern on Saturday, November 5.
That will be an 11:00 a.m. local kick for those who are attending the game, providing you with an additional hour to enjoy a delicious, doughy, deep-dish pizza. And you’ll need that extra hour because of the baking time!
The game will be carried on ABC to a national audience.
The Buckeyes have not played at Northwestern since 2019 when they were favored by 27.5 points. Ohio State won that game 52-3
The Buckeyes and Wildcats have played three times in the last four years, with two of those matchups coming in the Big Ten Championship Game. The last time OSU hosted Northwestern was 2016 when the Buckeyes were 26.5-point favorites and won 24-20.
The only kickoff times that are not yet known this season are the games against Indiana and Maryland. The kickoff time for Indiana will either be announced next Monday or the Monday after that. The game against Michigan is scheduled for a 12:00 pm kickoff per usual.
The Buckeyes will also be kicking off at 12:00 this weekend at Penn State on FOX.
