Joe Burrow and Dwayne Haskins Jr. once competed for the starting quarterback job at Ohio State.
They are set to duel as NFL quarterbacks this fall when the Cincinnati Bengals visit the Washington Redskins on Nov. 22.
The Week 11 matchup was announced Thursday night as the league unveiled its 2020 regular-season schedule amid the backdrop of the coronavirus pandemic. The kickoff time for the game is 1 p.m.
Cincinnati selected Burrow with the No. 1 overall pick in the draft last month, while Haskins will enter his second season in Washington after he was the franchise’s first-round pick last year.
Neither has secured the top spot on the depth chart, but will enter preseason training camp as their teams’ presumptive starters.
A week after selecting Burrow atop the draft, the Bengals released veteran Andy Dalton, who had been started since he was a rookie in 2011, paving the way for the southeast Ohio native to win the job.
Haskins started seven games in Washington last season, though he will battle with Kyle Allen after the Redskins traded for the former Carolina Panthers quarterback earlier this offseason.
While at Ohio State, the quarterbacks took part in a competition to succeed J.T. Barrett in early 2018, jockeying for the job over more than a dozen spring practices.
Haskins was in line to win the job at the end of spring practice, prompting Burrow to leave as a graduate transfer. He ended up at Louisiana State, where he started for a pair of seasons, including last fall when he won the Heisman Trophy and led the Tigers to a national championship.
