We’re over 6 months away from the 2022 edition of The Game, but the kickoff time and TV network are formally set. FOX has confirmed Michigan at Ohio State will be a Big Noon Kickoff game.

FOX Sports included The Game when promoting a loaded Thanksgiving weekend.

U-M travels to OSU in 2022, but it was actually Michigan’s Twitter account that confirmed the noon ET kickoff time.

ESPN’s Football Power Index preseason rankings have Ohio State at No. 2. Michigan is the next-highest Big Ten team in the FPI rankings at No. 7 overall. The Game regularly has conference championship and College Football Playoff implications.

Ohio State enjoyed an 8-game win streak, its longest in the rivalry, from 2012-to-2019. Michigan snapped that streak with a 42-27 win last year. The Game was not played in 2020.

The 2022 meeting will be the first in Columbus since 2018 when Ohio State won in a 62-39 rout.
