The Game will remain in its traditional midday time slot.

It was announced Monday that the 119th meeting between Ohio State and Michigan on Nov. 25 will kick off at noon and be televised by FOX.

The last time the rivalry started later than 12 p.m. was in 2006. In a rendition billed as the “Game of the Century” and featuring teams ranked No. 1 and No. 2 in the polls, the start time was 3:30 p.m., and the Buckeyes’ 42-39 win ended under the lights.

Ohio State will head to Ann Arbor in November looking to snap its first losing streak to the Wolverines in more than two decades.

After suffering a 45-23 setback last fall, it marked the first time since 1999 and 2000 that the Buckeyes had dropped consecutive games in the rivalry.

Kickoff times for two OSU games in 2023 have now been set with its Nov. 11 game against Michigan State to be held at 7:30 p.m. on NBC.
