News broke that Ohio State will be facing North Carolina in the CBS Sports Classic back in May. The tip-off time for the game was announced per a press release from the Ohio State athletics department.

The game will take place on Dec. 17 in Madison Square Garden in New York City. It will start at 3 p.m. ET. ย There will also be a blue blood matchup between Kentucky and UCLA following the 1st game.

Buckeyes fans will have to wait until August to get their tickets, as that’s when they’ll be available to the general public. The last time that Ohio State played North Carolina in 2019, the Buckeyes came away with a 74-49 victory.

Perhaps Ohio State can keep its win streak going against the Tarheels. You can watch the event of the CBS Television Network or on Paramount+.
