NORMAN, Oklahoma -

Kickoff and TV information for one of college football's premier 2017 non-conference games was announced Thursday. Oklahoma's Sept. 9 contest at Ohio State will start at 6:30 p.m. CT and be televised by ABC.

The Buckeyes (.724) and Sooners (.721) rank third and fourth in all-time winning percentage and have combined for 1,758 victories and 12 national titles. Since 2000, OU has the most wins among Power 5 conferences programs with 183, while Ohio State ranks second with 181. Each went 11-2 last year when OU finished No. 3 in the coaches poll and No. 5 in the Associated Press poll. Ohio State finished No. 6 in both polls.

The programs have met three times, with the visiting team winning all three contests.
