COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Big Ten Network has announced that Ohio State’s Sept. 27 home game against Cincinnati will kick off at 6 p.m.

It marks a record fourth night game in the 2014 season for the Buckeyes — with seven start times still to be determined.

The Bearcats’ game at Ohio Stadium will also mark the first time Ohio State has played three home games at night in a season. Ohio State’s games at home against Virginia Tech on Sept. 6, at Penn State on Oct. 25 and home against Illinois on Nov. 1 will start at 8 p.m.

Ohio State is 39-22 in night games (those starting after 5 p.m. local time).
