Give credit to Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith. Since declaring last month he planned to limit the number of MAC opponents on the Buckeyes’ future schedules, OSU has now inked two solid out-of-conference series. Just last week, it was announced that Ohio State and TCU would be meeting in 2018 and ’19; on Wednesday, OSU issued a release saying it would be playing Texas in 2022 and ’23. The Buckeyes will travel to Austin first before the Longhorns head to Columbus the following year.
