The large board in the office of Ohio State deputy athletic director Martin Jarmond that shows future football schedules is dry-erase for a reason. Erasing and reconfiguring are part of the game.

On Thursday, Ohio State and Texas Christian announced they will play at AT&T Stadium, home of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys, on Sept. 15, 2018, each earning a $5 million payout for making a move orchestrated by the Cowboys.

But that meant the home-and-home series for the two schools, originally scheduled for 2018 and ’19, was reduced to just the one game. Ohio State added Miami University to the open slot in 2019.

Jarmond said OSU was reluctant at first to go along with the change for 2018 but eventually came around, the payout and venue being major factors.

“That’s going to be a great game for our fans,” said Jarmond, who last week was named athletic director at Boston College but will fulfill his duties to Ohio State through June 2. “To be able to play in AT&T Stadium — obviously, Buckeye fans remember the last time we were there we won a (2014) national championship, so we thought that would be a great experience.”

The Buckeyes also announced home-and-home series with Washington, playing on the road in 2024 and at home in 2025, and with Boston College, playing at home in 2026 and on the road in 2027.

Bowling Green was added to the schedule in 2020 to go along with a game at Oregon; the Ducks will play at Ohio Stadium in 2021.

It gives Ohio State home-and-home series with five major opponents stretching deep into the next decade, including in 2022 and 2023 when the Buckeyes will play Notre Dame and Texas.

At least that’s the plan. As with the TCU series, situations are subject to change.

Jarmond remembered scrambling a few years ago when Vanderbilt backed out of a game scheduled for Ohio Stadium the year of the game. The Buckeyes filled the slot with San Diego State, but Jarmond said it’s also why they have written into their contracts financial penalties to dissuade such reneging unless it’s a mutual decision.

Flexibility is still key, even though Ohio State’s schedules are complete through 2019.

“Things change, situations change,” Jarmond said. “New ADs come in, new coaches come in. They have a different scheduling philosophy, so they want to change games. So it’s always something you have to keep top of mind, it’s something you think about every week.”
