One of the Big Ten’s most anticipated games this year now has a kickoff time and a home on television.
According to the conference, Ohio State vs. Indiana will take place on Nov. 21 at noon on FOX.
The contest between the two Big Ten East teams will take place in front of a huge TV audience, with massive postseason implications on the line. After both programs jumped out to 3-0 records, it looks like their game might decide which team will represent the division in the conference’s championship game.
But fans will still have to wait another weekend before watching the highly touted matchup.
"Calling all cars." "Calling all cars." This just in from the Big Ten Conference: the Nov. 21 game featuring Indiana coming into Ohio Stadium to play the Buckeyes will kick off at noon with FOX televising to a national audience.

The Buckeyes are off to another fantastic start in 2020, looking dominant in all three wins behind the arm of Justin Fields. The junior quarterback has been nearly perfect, completing 73 of his 82 passes in Ohio State’s first few games. He’s also tacked on 13 total touchdowns while throwing zero interceptions. The team’s wins have been over mediocre opponents as Nebraska, Penn State and Rutgers are a combined 1-7.
Meanwhile, the Hoosiers have been the Big Ten’s most surprising team in the early going. Redshirt-sophomore Michael Penix Jr. looks like Indiana’s solution at quarterback, while a strong defensive secondary has stymied opposing offenses. The Hoosiers downed Penn State in a thrilling season opener before knocking off Rutgers and Michigan.
Fans will definitely want to tune into the late-November game between the two Big East programs, but will have to wait a week to do so.
Indiana takes on a weak Michigan State team this Saturday, while Ohio State travels to play Maryland.
The Hoosiers and Buckeyes will re-unite on Nov. 21 in Ohio Stadium, in a battle for the Big Ten crown.
