Ohio State Season Preview: Schedule

Posted By Jimmy Martinez On Jun 13 2012 @ 2:39 pm In Ohio State | 2 Comments

Sunday marked the 400th commencement of The Ohio State University, while I crossed the Block O at midfield with my Diploma to the sound of thousands of family and friends cheering for their graduates, I could only imagine what it would feel like in that exact spot during an actual game. The ceremony also marked the last Spring Quarter Commencement as the University will transition to the semester school system in the fall. With that the days of “pre-season” football tickets, tickets to games before the fall quarter would have begun, also went out the window. With the Urban Meyer Era set to begin September 1st against Miami (OH), the Shoe will be sure to be filled to capacity and the students will be present giving the stadium an atmosphere usually reserved for B1G and high profile out of conference games.

Practice is still weeks away from starting, leaving plenty of time to start hyping up the season and I’ll start this be breaking down the schedule.

The schedule seems favorable from the standpoint that the Buckeyes will play eight of their twelve games in Columbus, but make no mistake the road games will even that out. While Indiana has seemed like more of a home game in recent memory, trips to East Lansing, Happy Valley, and Madison are no joke. The big out of conference game this year will be against the California Golden Bears. The schedule also brings Nebraska to the Shoe for the first time and oddly enough the last time the two will face each other in the regular season until 2017. And of course the last game of the season, the most important, is still against TSUN. The complete schedule is listed below. Next week will begin the weekly breakdown of the team starting with the Hogs.
