The Ohio State Buckeyes and Army Black Knights have been trying to work out a game with each other for some time now. Now, the two have finally settled on a date and fans of the two teams will see them clash in two years.
The two will meet up in Columbus on September 16, 2017 as reported by ESPN’s Brett McMurphy.

Ohio State now has a pretty loaded schedule for the 2017 season. On top of playing nine Big Ten games, the Buckeyes will play Oklahoma and UNLV, as well as Army. This means that the Buckeyes will not play any FCS teams in the non-conference.
For the Black Knights, they have a huge chance to do something big that season. If they go out and pull the ultimate upset, that would for sure put the Buckeyes in dire straits when it comes to making the College Football Playoff or a New Year’s Six bowl game.
Oh, the possibilities.
