Ohio football officially announced its 2013 schedule earlier today, which features four games on the ESPN family of networks.
The most challenging game on the schedule for Frank Solich and the 'Cats will undoubtedly be the season opener as the Green and White head to Louisville, Ky. on Aug. 31 to take on the defending Sugar Bowl champion Louisville Cardinals.
Following the Louisville game, the 'Cats will return home for the entire month of September to battle the likes of North Texas, Marshall and Austin Peay before a bye week the week of Sept. 28.
In October, the 'Cats will hit the road to battle Akron and Eastern Michigan while playing host to Central Michigan and Miami (OH).
