Grambling State adds FBS power Ohio State to future schedule

Grambling State adds FBS power Ohio State to future schedule

For the first time in school history, the Grambling State University football team will travel to Columbus, Ohio, to take on Ohio State on Sept. 6, 2025.

It will also be the first time GSU faces a Big Ten Conference member.

Grambling will receive a $1 million payout for the game.

The game features two of college football’s most historic football brands. Grambling State boasts 27 Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) Championships and 16 Black College National Titles.

It has produced four Pro Football Hall of Famers in Willie Brown, Buck Buchanan, Willie Davis, and Charlie Joiner. The Tigers also cultivated Super Bowl XXII MVP Doug Williams, James “Shack” Harris, and the first player to be drafted to the NFL, Paul “Tank” Younger.

“This is another example of us being able to showcase our brand to a national audience,” said Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics Dr. Travyean D. Scott. “We are thrilled that our players and fans will get to experience a matchup between two of the most storied football programs in the country.

When you think of college football, Grambling State and Ohio State are two names that many think of immediately. This contest will allow both our fan bases to experience the cultural and athletic excellence of both institutions.”
