Ohio State sets season-opening matchup for 2028
College football has a lot of silly rules and quirks to the sport. One of the quirkiest things about college football is scheduling 10 years or further in advance for an opponent.
Ohio State has scheduled MAC opponent Buffalo for the 2028 season. Yup, that’s right, the 2028 season 7 years from now.
According to Joey Kaufman with The Columbus Dispatch, Ohio State and Buffalo were supposed to play last season, but the game was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Both the MAC and the B1G switched to conference-only schedules during the pandemic.
The Buckeyes and the Bulls last played back in 2013, where the Buckeyes won the game 40-20. According to The Dispatch, it was the first meeting between Ohio State and Buffalo.

Ohio State had a bitter end to its season as the Buckeyes lost to rival Michigan 42-27. That held them out of the B1G Championship Game and ultimately a spot in the College Football Playoff.
The Buckeyes still got into a New Year’s Six Bowl as they finished the season 10-2 and 8-1 in conference play. The only 2 losses were to Oregon and Michigan. Ohio State will face No. 11 Utah in the Rose Bowl Game in Pasadena, CA., at 5:00 ET on ESPN.
