COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio State will host Atlantic Coast Conference power Virginia Tech on Sept. 6 next year instead of Sept. 20, as was originally scheduled.
The change was made to accommodate ESPN.
Sept. 6 was initially an off week for the Buckeyes after the opener against Navy at Baltimore’s M&T Bank Stadium. The first off week of the 2014 season will now move to Sept. 20.
The remainder of the schedule: Sept. 13, Kent State; Sept. 20, bye; Sept. 27, Cincinnati; Oct. 4, at Maryland; Oct. 11, bye; Oct. 18, Rutgers; Nov. 1, Illinois; Nov. 8, at Michigan State; Nov. 15, at Minnesota; Nov. 22, Indiana; Nov. 29, Michigan.
