Key Games

3/1 vs Cornell

The Buckeyes will begin a four-game home stand against Ivy League power Cornell. The Big Red and Buckeyes are in a similar boat after disappointing 2019 seasons. The talent that both these squads possess, especially on the offensive end, should make this one a very good contest. 

3/10 vs Notre Dame

Ohio State welcomes in Midwest foe Notre Dame for one of their last games before conference play. A long-standing Midwestern matchup, Ohio State will be looking for a statement win over the Irish after living in their shadow for quite sometime. 

3/15 vs Denver

The all-time series between these two squads is tied at 12. Having their matchup cancelled last season, the Buckeyes will be looking to defend their turf once again and avenge a 12-7 loss in 2018. 

4/11 vs Johns Hopkins

Since the Big Ten added lacrosse, the Buckeyes and Blue Jays have had some great battles with Ohio State winning two of their nine meetings. The Buckeyes will be looking for their second straight win over the Johns Hopkins after winning 14-13 last season in a second half comeback. 

4/25 vs Michigan

It’s one of the biggest college football rivalries and there is no love lost on the lacrosse field either. Being played at the end of the season again, this rivalry is given an even bigger spotlight in lacrosse. Additionally, Ohio State suffered their first loss to the Wolverines in programs history last season.
