The two teams were scheduled to play in Eugene during the 2020 season, but that was canceled because of the pandemic. Both the B1G and Pac-12 played reduced, conference-only schedules last fall.
Both conferences initially canceled their fall football seasons before changing course.
Ohio State and Oregon have played nine times with the Buckeyes winning all nine matchups. The last time the two teams went head to head was in the first College Football Playoff National Championship Game with Ohio State claiming a title after a 42-20 victory.
This will be the first time the two teams have played in Columbus since 1987.
