How To Watch Ohio State Football

Can Ohio State reclaim its spot atop the Big Ten? Here’s how to watch Ohio State football games this fall. Sports logo featuring animated athlete with raised hands.Regular coaching carousel followers likely know the following saying: A coach never wants to be the guy who follows the Guy.

In Ohio State’s case, coach Ryan Day followed Urban Meyer’s championship-winning tenure with a sterling 45–6 overall record, and he’s lost only two conference games since taking over in 2019. But what is Ohio State’s reward for taking eventual national champion Georgia down to the wire, despite dropping two games against a resurgent Michigan team? Preseason predictions that no longer have them as the Big Ten’s top dog and analysts wondering if Ohio State’s lost their fastball.

On paper, the Buckeyes are much closer to the team that was just a point away from a potential national championship run last year. Ohio State’s receiver room continues to churn out NFL first-round talent, and Buckeyes starting quarterback Kyle McCord will likely blaze through the bulk of their conference schedule.

But as always, Ohio State’s season comes down to the game at the end of the year. Here’s what you need to know if you want to watch Ohio State football this season.
