Ohio State Buckeyes 2022 football schedule includes Notre Dame, Michigan home games
The Ohio State football program celebrates Ohio Stadium's 100th anniversary in 2022 and to mark the occasion, the Buckeyes will spend the entire first month of the season playing home games.
The Buckeyes' 2022 schedule features eight home games including the first five games of the season, the first two games of the Big Ten Conference schedule and the last game of 2022.
And what better way to kickoff the centennial celebration of Ohio Stadium than playing one of college football's most historic programs, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish to begin the season.
