Ohio State’s football game against Maryland on Nov. 9 at Ohio Stadium will kick off at noon, the Big Ten announced Monday. Fox Sports will televise the game.

It will mark the fifth game this season, and fourth at home, that the No. 3 Buckeyes will play at noon. They have previously hosted Florida Atlantic, Cincinnati and Wisconsin at noon, and played their Big Ten opener at Indiana at the same hour.

Ohio State (8-0) has this weekend off. Maryland (3-5) hosts Michigan this Saturday, also at noon. After the Nov. 9 game, OSU plays at Rutgers on Nov. 16 and hosts No. 5 Penn State on Nov. 23. Those kickoff times have not been announced. The Buckeyes finish the regular season Nov. 30 with another noon game on Fox, at rival Michigan.
