Yes, there's already a betting line for the Buckeyes' Week 1 game.

Quick: who's Ohio State playing in Week 1 of the 2018 season?

Yeah, we forgot too.

Let's take a look ahead at the Buckeyes' 2018 campaign, though. Ohio State is facing a Power 5 team to open their season.

Urban Meyer and Co. are set to host Oregon State at Ohio Stadium in Columbus for Week 1.

We already have a betting line for that contest, too. The online sportsbook, 5Dimes, has released an initial spread for the Ohio State-Oregon State showdown.

The sportsbook likes the Buckeyes - by a lot.

Ohio State has opened as a 30.5-point favorite against Oregon State. The Beavers were one of the worst Power 5 teams in the country in 2017, going 1-11.

This one will probably be a blowout, but it'll still feature some interesting storylines. Most notably - the Buckeyes will be debuting an new starting quarterback.

J.T. Barrett, a three-time captain and four-year starter, is gone. Replacing him will be either Dwayne Haskins, Tate Martell or Joe Burrow. Whoever it is, they're likely to light up the Beavers.

A kickoff time and TV channel have yet to be set for this one.
