COLUMBUS, Ohio – Night games in November are rare in Big Ten country, where the air is liable to be bitterly cold after sunset at that time of year, but the Buckeyes and Illini are willing to give a try this fall.

Ohio State’s home game against Illinois Nov. 1 is one of three Buckeye games scheduled for primetime this fall. It will be the first November night game in Ohio Stadium history.

ABC/ESPN released its schedule of night games Tuesday, and, in addition to the Illinois game, the Buckeyes’ home opener Sept. 6 against Virginia Tech and a game Oct. 25 at Penn State will also kick off at 8:00 p.m.

ESPN will carry the Virginia Tech game. ABC, ESPN or ESPN2 will carry the other two games, the networks announced.

The Big Ten Network will reveal its slate of primetime games Tuesday, April 22.

Ohio State’s all-time record in night games is 39-22. That includes a 10-3 mark in Ohio Stadium, 20-10 on the road and 9-9 at neutral sites

The only other Ohio State start time that is known is the Aug. 30 opener against Navy at Baltimore’s M&T Bank Stadium, which will begin at noon.
