Ohio State’s 2013 football schedule has been finalized with the addition of a home game Sept. 7 against San Diego State University, director of athletics Gene Smith announced today.

The Aztecs are currently 6-3 on the season and 4-1 in the Mountain West with a game at Boise State this weekend. Next year, both San Diego State and Boise State will become a member of the Big East Conference.

Ohio State has won the three previous meetings between the teams (all in Ohio Stadium): 27-12 in 2001; 16-13 in 2003; and 27-6 in 2005.

 The order of the 2013 non-conference home games had to be altered during the process of scheduling the Aztecs, and so game dates with Florida A&M and Buffalo were changed. The Sept. 7 game against Florida A&M will now be played Sept. 21, and the initially scheduled Sept. 21 game vs. Buffalo will now be the season opener on Aug. 31.

“We are very appreciative that Buffalo and Florida A&M had some flexibility and were open to changing game dates,” Smith said.
