COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio State will likely host Central Florida at Ohio Stadium on Sept. 8, 2012.
The Buckeyes also announced Monday the game initially set for that date against the University of Cincinnati will probably be moved to 2018 in Ohio Stadium.
The announcements were made even though agreements between the schools have yet to be finalized.
The Orlando Sentinel reported Saturday that UCF athletic director Keith Tribble said the Knights were on the verge of signing an agreement to play at Ohio State in 2012. UCF was originally slated to play Pittsburgh next season, but the Panthers asked to be released from the agreement. Tribble said UCF agreed and began searching for a high-profile road game, eventually reaching a one-game verbal agreement with Ohio State.
