Historically in games with a 5 p.m. or later kickoff, OSU is 10-3 at home, 20-10 at an opponent's stadium and 9-9 in neutral sites such as bowl games, according to an OSU spokesman.

The Buckeyes now know the start time of five games this season, including the noon kickoff in the season opener vs. Navy in Baltimore's M&T Bank Stadium, home of the Baltimore Ravens.
