Boston College-Ohio State Series Pushed Back To 2023-24?

Greg Bartram-USA TODAY Sports

Per a leaked B1G document, Boston College's 2020-2021 series with Ohio State has been delayed two years.

According to a leaked Big Ten scheduling document (which the later taken down by the league once they were made aware of its existence), Boston College's scheduled 2020-2021 home-and-home with Ohio State has been delayed two years.

The two schools had originally agreed to meet in Columbus on September 19, 2020 and in Chestnut Hill on September 18, 2021. Now, according to the Big Ten scheduling document, the Eagles will travel to Columbus on September 2, 2023 and the Buckeyes will make the return trip on August 31, 2024.

While this news comes as a bit of a disappointment, at this point there's no reason to think the series will be canceled altogether. With the move to a nine game Big Ten schedule starting in 2016, it would appear that Ohio State is trying to better space out non-conference home-and-homes series with Texas, Oregon and Boston College from 2020-24 to maximize the number of home games for the Buckeyes (Ohio State will have five Big Ten road games in odd years).

Still, this adds another two years between now and then, leaving Boston College without a marquee non-conference opponent anywhere on the schedule from 2016-2022. With the uncertainty surrounding when the Eagles will next play Notre Dame during the Irish's second ACC schedule rotation (2017-2019), it sure would be nice to see a deal, any deal struck with an AQ conference opponent at this point.
