Ohio State will travel to face TCU at Amon G. Carter Stadium in Forth Worth on Sept. 15, 2018. The Buckeyes will then host the Horned Frogs at Ohio Stadium in Columbus on Sept. 21. 2019.
The two schools have played six times, all in Columbus, but haven’t squared off since 1973. Ohio State leads the series 4-1-1.
