Buckeyes, Spartans to meet Nov. 8 in primetime

Posted: Updated:
Ohio State will play a record five regular season games at night in 2014 as ESPN/ABC and the Big Ten Conference today announced the Ohio State-Michigan State game Nov. 8 in East Lansing, Mich., will kick off at 8 p.m. ET and will be televised on ABC.

Ohio State is already playing three night games at Ohio Stadium in 2014 – another first for Ohio State – as it comes after ABC/ESPN and Big Ten Network had previously chosen Ohio State games at home against Virginia Tech, Cincinnati and Illinois as primetime affairs on its networks and with 8 p.m. starts. Ohio State also will play under the lights at Penn State Oct. 25.

Ohio State is officially 39-22 in night games (those starting after 5 p.m. local time). Ohio State is 29-19 in night games played on the road (20-10) or at a neutral site (9-9), and 10-3 in Ohio Stadium night games. (Records reflect vacated night game wins in 2010: Marshall, at Minnesota and vs. Arkansas).
