At long last, college football is nearly back. Here’s how to watch Ohio State Buckeyes football throughout the 2022 season.

O-H-I-O! Football is almost back – which means we finally have our Saturday rituals back. Here’s how to watch Ohio State Buckeyes football in 2022.

Ohio State Buckeyes Outlook 2022

The Buckeyes won 11 games – including a huge comeback in the Rose Bowl – but things don’t feel great in Columbus. That’s mainly because the Buckeyes fell to Michigan and failed to make the Big 10 Championship game.

So, we run it back in 2022 with some renewed vigor. Back is C.J. Stroud under center. Stroud completed 72 percent of his passes last season, throwing for 4,435 yards and 44 touchdowns. It’s hard to be too critical of play like that, but it does feel like he can level up in this offense.

Joining him in the backfield is TreVeyon Henderson. Henderson is considered by many to be the best back in the Big 10 – so he’ll have to live up to those lofty expectations.

The last – but certainly not least – member of Ohio State’s big three is Jaxon Smith-Njigba.

Smith-Njigba is coming off a 2021 in which he set Ohio State records for receptions (95) and yards (1,606). In his final game (that masterful comeback in the Rose Bowl), he put together what might be the single greatest game from a wide out in history. In a 48-45 victory over Utah, Smith-Njigba caught 15 passes for 347 yards and three scores.

Defensively, the Buckeyes left a lot to be desired. But head coach Ryan Day hired Jim Knowles as defensive coordinator to address those concerns.

Ohio State Football Schedule 2022

Ohio State currently has six games locked into either a time slot or network. They are:

Saturday, September 3: vs Notre Dame (7:30PM ET, ABC)

Saturday, September 10: vs Arkansas State (12PM ET, BTN)

Saturday, September 17: vs Toledo (7PM ET, FOX)

Saturday, September 24: vs Wisconsin (ABC)

Saturday, October 1: vs Rutgers (3:30PM ET, network TBD)

Saturday, November 26: vs Michigan (12PM ET, FOX)

Overall, Ohio State starts the year with six home games out of their first seven. Michigan State is the lone away game during that stretch, with Penn State, Northwestern and Maryland marking the other three.

Finally, the Buckeyes will finish the year hosting Michigan in a highly-anticipated, bad-blood filled contest.
