COLUMBUS — A new era of Ohio State football is officially set to begin Saturday when No. 5 Ohio State opens the regular season against Florida Atlantic.
New coach. New defensive coaching staff — aside from Larry Johnson. New quarterback. New opponent.
The Buckeyes will begin the season in the top 5, as they have every season since 2013. And just because Urban Meyer retired doesn’t mean Ryan Day won’t face the same lofty expectations in Year One as full-time head coach. For Day’s first test, Lane Kiffin and Florida Atlantic will make their first appearance on Ohio State’s schedule.
For anybody heading to the game, listening on the radio or watching on TV, Lettermen Row has all the viewing information that could possibly be need to not miss a moment.
