The Ohio State Buckeyes aren’t shy about playing high-profile non-conference games under the leadership of Urban Meyer. The Buckeyes began a home-and-home with Oklahoma in 2016 and, prior to that, Ohio State faced Virginia Tech in both 2014 and 2015.
To that end, Meyer and his team will be taking on another exciting match-up in the future, as Ohio State and Washington announced a future home-and-home that will take place in 2024 and 2025. Washington head coach Chris Petersen said the following about the partnership:
“Big, early-season matchups between traditional powers is a highlight of every college football season. I’m really excited that we’ll be able to bring the Buckeyes to Seattle for what should be a great September afternoon for Husky fans and college football fans everywhere.”
It should be noted that there is no guarantee that either program will be operating at the highest level of the sport in more than a half-decade but, with these two head coaches on board, it would be a surprise if either fell off. Washington has been quickly on the rise under Petersen in recent years, peaking with a 2016 College Football Playoff appearance, and Ohio State is second only to Alabama in terms of recent on-field success.
2024 and 2025 feel very far away but these two football games should be a lot of fun.
