This should do something for those of you complaining about non-conference games.

2020 game in at Autzen, 2021 matchup in Columbus. The Ducks have never beaten Ohio State, losing all eight matchups between the schools, including the 2010 Rose Bowl.

Said Rob Mullens in the official statement: "We are excited to add a home and home series with Ohio State as it provides another major conference opponent to our future schedule, the Pac-12 and Big Ten have enjoyed a long-standing relationship, so the opportunity to add another Big Ten opponent was attractive. We have two of the most passionate fan bases in college football and the atmosphere at both Ohio Stadium and Autzen Stadium are among the best in college football. Attracting top teams to Autzen Stadium remains a goal as this is the type of matchup our loyal fans love."

And Chip Kelly: "This will be a great opportunity for our fans to be a part of an intersectional battle that has not taken place in Eugene very often. I've always been a proponent of playing the highest level of competition possible. I'm a firm believer that you make yourself better when pushed by the level of your competition."

Oregon also announced that Oregon will open the 2018 season with a home game against Bowling Green. Texas A&M is already on the schedule that season.
