Ohio State 2013 schedule: San Diego State officially replaces Vanderbilt as opener

Greg Bartram-US PRESSWIRE

The Buckeyes will take on Buffalo in the season opener Aug. 31, with SDSU traveling to Columbus Sept. 7, and Florida A&M coming Sept. 21.

Ohio State announced San Diego State will replace Vanderbilt on the Buckeyes' 2013 football schedule.

Land Grant Holy Land had the news of the schedule change Friday.

Vanderbilt had to back out of the game due to the restructuring of the SEC schedule next year. Ohio State will host Buffalo in the season opener Aug. 31, with the Aztecs traveling to Columbus for a Sept. 7 game. Florida A&M will play Ohio State Sept. 21, instead of the originally scheduled date of Sept. 7.

"San Diego State has a fine football program, and we are happy to be able to add them to our schedule," Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith told the Columbus Dispatch. "We have had an excellent relationship with SDSU over the years, with three exciting, competitive games since 2001."

San Diego State is leaving the Mountain West Conference after this season to join the Big East. The Aztecs last played the Buckeyes in 2005, with Ohio State taking a 27-6 victory.
