Ohio State is on a warpath. The third-ranked Buckeyes have their eyes set on winning a third straight Big Ten title and returning to the College Football Playoff after starting the 2019 season 8-0 and beating every opponent by at least 24 points. Following Saturday’s 38-7 win against No. 18 Wisconsin, the Scarlet and Gray appear destined to achieve their goals.
But there remains four games to play this year. Following the second and final off week of the season next Saturday, Ohio State faces Maryland and Rutgers before back-to-back games against Penn State at home and trip to Ann Arbor to face rivals Michigan.
On Monday, the conference announced the start time for Week 11 and the game against the Terrapins on Nov. 9. The Buckeyes and the Terps will kick off at 12 p.m. ET from Ohio Stadium and will air on FOX Sports.

Maryland started the 2019 season brightly with blowout wins against Howard and then No. 21 Syracuse. But the year took a turn for the worse beginning with a 20-17 loss to Temple and the Terrapins have just one win since mid-September.
Ohio State and Maryland have met just five times in the two programs‘ history beginning in 2014 after the Terps joined the Big Ten. The Buckeyes are 5-0 against the Terrapins all time beginning with a 52-24 win in College Park five years ago. Nearly all of the games between the two teams have been blowouts except for last year’s game where the Scarlet and Gray earned a 52-51 overtime win on the road.
The only other game on Ohio State’s remaining schedule with a kick off time is the regular season finale against Michigan.
