What TV channel is Ohio State-Arkansas State today? Live stream, time, how to watch online
After an exhilarating season-opening victory against now-No. 8 Notre Dame, No. 3 Ohio State has a different challenge: getting motivated to play against a major underdog in Week 2.
The Buckeyes picked up a resounding 21-10 win over the Irish in front of a TV audience of 10.5million last Saturday night.
But this week, Ohio State has to be careful not to revert to last season’s habit of looking past certain teams, quarterback CJ Stroud said.
The Red Wolves of Jonesboro, Arkansas, feel good about themselves after blasting FCS Grambling State in last week’s opener, despite being a six-touchdown underdog according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
When is Ohio State-Arkansas State?
Ohio State plays Arkansas State at 11 a.m. (noon ET) on Saturday, September 10.

SMITH-NJIGBA DOUBTFUL: Ohio State coach Ryan Day didn’t say much this week about the health of star receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba, who left the Notre Dame game early with a leg injury and returned for a few games after that.
Stroud later said Smith-Njigba injured one of his hamstrings, and not seriously. But it’s unclear if the receiver will be ready to play on Saturday.
In other injury news, Day said injured receiver Julian Fleming could return for Saturday’s game, and although starting center Luke Wypler left last week’s game in a walking boot, he should to go well.
FULL CIRCLE: Champ Flemings’ first game as Oregon State’s first-year wide receiver of 2018 came at Ohio Stadium — a 77-31 loss to the Buckeyes. The 5-foot-5, 142-pound Fleming is now in his fifth year after being transferred to Arkansas State.
And luckily, he returns to Columbus. It doesn’t matter to him.
“The football field is 120 meters long, no matter where you want to put it,” he said.
LAUNCH IT: Quarterback James Blackman threw two touchdown passes and ran for two scores in Arkansas State’s 58-3 win over Grambling. Blackman is in his sixth year of college football, moving to Jonesboro after four seasons at Florida State.
Johnnie Lang, another sixth-year player who spent four years at Iowa State, rushed for 124 yards and a touchdown last week. Flemings had seven catches for 122 yards and a score.
HE SAID IT : “The game is over from the week before, no matter what happens, good, bad or indifferent, because we have to move on, because nothing we did last week matters,” Day said. “And it comes down to this term ‘competitive endurance’. Can we bring that in every week?”
