Ohio State and Texas have agreed to push back their future home-and-home football series. You’re going to have to wait for that potential Urban Meyer-Tom Herman matchup, Buckeyes fans.
The Buckeyes and Longhorns will now meet in the 2025 and 2026 seasons, Ohio State announced Wednesday. Those games were originally scheduled for the 2022 and 2023 campaigns. Ohio State has meetings with Notre Dame on its non-conference schedules in the 2022 and 2023 seasons.
Ohio State’s 2025 meeting with Texas will take place on Aug. 30 in Austin. The teams will meet on Sept. 5 the following year in Columbus.
Texas and Ohio State have three previous meetings. They split a pair of regular season meetings in 2005 and 2006, and the Longhorns most recently won the 2009 Fiesta Bowl against the Buckeyes.
Herman, Ohio State’s former offensive coordinator, took over as Texas’ head coach before the 2017 season. Of course, there is no guarantee he or Meyer will be on their respective sidelines when the teams meet in seven years.
Ohio State completes 2020, 2021 nonconference schedules

Ohio State will face Oregon Buffalo and Bowling Green during its 2020 nonconference schedule. The Buckeyes will play Oregon, Tulsa and Akron outside of Big Ten play in 2021.
