Ohio State, Texas schedule future series
By David Ubben
Ohio State and Texas played a pair of classic games earlier this decade, and next decade, they'll renew the series with home-and-home beginning in Austin in 2022.
They'll play in Columbus in 2023.
From our newser:
The Buckeyes and Longhorns have met three times -- in the 2005 and 2006 regular seasons and in the 2009 Fiesta Bowl. Texas leads the series, 2-1, including a memorable win in Columbus in 2005 during the Longhorns' national title season. Texas also won the Fiesta Bowl, 24-21.
"Playing a program like the University of Texas always creates remarkable experiences for our players and fans," Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith said in a statement. "Our last series with the Longhorns contributed to the great history and tradition that Buckeye Nation enjoys."
I'm always a fan of these big nonconference matchups, and this will be one of the best. Ohio State will also play a home-and-home with TCU in 2018 and 2019.
