Ohio State, TCU schedule home-and-home

The Little Sisters of the Poor Bowl is official.

Although, with TCU now in the Big 12 instead of the Mountain West, there’s probably a more appropriate name for the newly-announced home-and-home between the Horned Frogs and Ohio State, but we’re just going to stick with the aforementioned title.

The two schools released the announcement Tuesday. The Buckeyes will travel to Fort Worth in 2018, with TCU visiting Columbus the following year.

“Competing against programs from the state of Texas has always offered exciting experiences for our players and fans,” Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith said. “TCU continues to be one of the top football programs in the country.”

Just last week, Smith told the Associated Press he was looking to schedule tougher out-of-conference games to position OSU better if the team is in contention for a playoff appearance.

The two schools have played six times over their history, all at Ohio Stadium. The last meeting between the two was in 1973 and the Buckeyes hold a 4-1-1 edge in the series.

    awesome – should be a great game…OSU will win by about 7-10 points.
    I love the pic too — best VP candidate by far & the best college Pres.

    A rising program (TCU) playing a declining program living in the past (OSU) should be fun for TCU.

    This has got to be a mistake. The Buckeyes have a strict policy of playing all of their non-conference games at home against mid-majors and bottom dwellers.

    What’s with the picture of President Gee posing with Eddie Munster?

    Go Froggies, show ’em what you showed Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl. The B1G is not ready for prime time with the Big 12 or the SEC.

    The Buckeyes have played Miami, USC, and Texas in recent years so get your facts straight “Bo”. Idiot.

    Fiesty1, I’m going to tell you what I told the overyly cocky Hog fans at the Sugerbowl a few years back, “You have some great teams in your conference, but you’re not one of them.” That win over Wisconsin was more about what the Badgers didn’t do (coaching) WAY more than what TCU did do.
