Just a week and a half after settling into his new office in Chestnut Hill, Athletic Director Brad Bates has made his first splash. Bates announced today that Boston College and Ohio State have signed an agreement for a two-game football series in 2020 and 2021.

“This will be a great opportunity for our team to measure itself against one of the premier programs in college football,” Bates said in a statement.  “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.”

The Eagles and Buckeyes have played each other three times in school history: 1989, 1990, and most recently in 1995. Ohio State won all three of those games.

The 2020 game will be played in Columbus on Sept. 19, while the 2021 game will be played in Chestnut Hill on Sept. 18.

“Boston College is a fine program from an outstanding conference,” said Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith in a release.
