Boston College will play a two-game football series with Ohio State starting in 2020.

Boston College has agreed to a two-game football series with Ohio State starting in 2020, athletic director Brad Bates announced in a statement Wednesday afternoon. The Eagles will travel to Columbus Sept. 19, 2020, and the Buckeyes will come to the Heights Sept. 18, 2021.

Bates said:

"This will be a great opportunity for our team to measure itself against one of the premier programs in college football. We will have the opportunity to showcase the rich history and tradition of Boston College football in a great matchup between ACC and Big Ten schools."

Going back to 1989, the two schools have faced each other just three times -- once in Columbus in 1989, then in Chestnut Hill in 1990 and last at the Kickoff Classic at the Meadowlands in New Jersey in 1995. The Buckeyes won all three meetings.
