3/20 vs Denver: After not being able to play the past few seasons, the Ohio State-Denver series returns. The last time these two teams faced was in 2018 where the Pioneers got a 12-7 victory. The Buckeyes will be looking to get a win against the Pioneers as this series returns. The all-time series between these two is tied at 12.
4/24 vs Michigan: Per usual, the Buckeyes end their regular season slate against arch-rival Michigan. Ohio State met the Wolverines three times last season, winning both regular season meeting before falling, 15-11, in the Big Ten Quarterfinals. Expect another good battle between these two in 2022.
