WVU, Ohio State To Meet In Cleveland Classic
The first annual Cleveland Classic will take place on Dec. 29, 2019 at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. The Ohio State Buckeyes will take on the West Virginia Mountaineers. This will be the first meeting since 2010 and the 17th meeting between the border schools and just the third in the last 24 years.
Ohio State leads the all-time series 9-7 that began in 1940. The Buckeyes won the first eight meetings in the series, while the Mountaineers have won seven of the last eight. This will be the first meeting on a neutral court between the two schools.
FOX Sports Broadcast network and FS1 will be broadcasting the game on Sunday, Dec. 29.
Excited for Mountaineer Nation to pack Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse for the first ever Cleveland Classic against the Buckeyes! No better way for fans to celebrate the holiday season than some holiday hoops! https://t.co/3J4nlnRbPV
