What TV channel is Ohio State-Toledo today? Live stream, time, how to watch online
No. 3 Ohio State hosts Toledo on Saturday, Sept. 17. The match will be streamed live on DirecTV Stream (free trial) and fuboTV (live stream).
The Buckeyes tried last week to smooth out their early season wrinkles against a heavy underdog.
Buckeyes coach Ryan Day doesn’t think they’ve knocked out enough to be a championship contender just yet.
Penalties remain the main problem. Ohio State gave last week’s opponent Arkansas State more penalty yards than the Red Wolves gained all afternoon playing football.
The Buckeyes (2-0) were scored nine times for 85 yards on Saturday after being penalized seven times for 75 yards in their opener against Notre Dame.
The Buckeyes have another chance to tune up before heading into the Big Ten schedule when Toledo travels to Ohio Stadium on Saturday night.
The Rockets (2-0) were expected to finish second in the Mid-American Conference West Division, but it’s hard to get a good read because their opponents were so outmatched in the first two games. Toledo buried Long Island University and UMass by a combined score of 92-10.
The Rockets will be four-touchdown underdogs this week.
When is Ohio State-Toledo?
Ohio State plays Toledo at 6 p.m. (7 p.m. ET) on Saturday, September 17.

RUN IT: AP Preseason All-American running back TreVeyon Henderson continued to split runs with fellow sophomore Miyan Williams. The combination has worked for the Buckeyes since last season.
Henderson rushed for 91 yards and Williams for 84 and a touchdown against Notre Dame. They combined for 123 last week, with Henderson scoring twice.
“I really think they’re a dynamic duo,” Stroud said. “Miyan has been good since he arrived here. His pass blocking is terrific. Same with Tre. Tre takes it very seriously, which helps me. And I really think our approach in the offseason, and making sure we had to run the ball, is paying dividends.
A LOOK AT FINN: Ohio State defensive coordinator Jim Knowles said one of the challenges with Toledo was containing quarterback Dequan Finn, who always threatens to turn broken plays into positive yards.
“I think he can do it whenever he wants, not so many runs designed for the quarterback, but we have to be ready for that,” Knowles said. “He makes a lot of games with his feet. Jamming situations, this is where you really have to be aware of what it can do. He has all the tools, makes all the throws, very capable.
TAKE A BREAK : Ohio State star receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba has been sidelined with a hamstring issue since the start of Week 1. Day said he could be back on Saturday .
“We’re going to expect him to play this weekend,” Day said. “We’ll see how this week goes, but we’ll only put him in the game if we’re 100 per cent sure he’s ready to roll.”
Starting receiver Julian Fleming, who missed the first two games with an injury, could also play Saturday, Day said.
Harrison and Emeka Egbuka have become go-to receivers with both on the shelf.
FUN FACT: Ohio State hasn’t lost to an in-state opponent since 1921, when Oberlin College — southwest of Cleveland — edged the Buckeyes 7-6. Ohio State has beaten Toledo three times, most recently in 2011.
