BC sets two-game series with Ohio State

Boston College and Ohio State have agreed to a home-and-home football series in 2020 and 2021, the schools announced Wednesday.

The Eagles and Buckeyes will meet in Columbus on Sept. 19, 2020, and in Chestnut Hill on Sept. 18, 2021.

“This will be a great opportunity for our team to measure itself against one of the premier programs in college football,” Boston College athletic director Brad Bates said in a statement. “We will have the opportunity to showcase the rich history and tradition of Boston College football in a great matchup between ACC and Big Ten schools.”

The schools last met in 1995 at the Kickoff Classic at the Meadowlands in New Jersey. Ohio State won that game, and the two previous meetings between the schools.
