Ohio State vs. Indiana live stream: How to watch online

GLENDALE, AZ - DECEMBER 31: J.T. Barrett /

Here’s how you can watch the No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes open their 2017-18 college football campaign against the Indiana Hoosiers in Bloomington on Thursday night.

The nightmares of their 31-0 defeat at the hands of reigning champion Clemson in the College Football Playoff are gone and a fresh start awaits the Ohio State Buckeyes on Thursday night in Bloomington against the Indiana Hoosiers.

Ohio State, who has made the playoff in two of the three years the playoff has existed, begin the 2017-18 college football season at No. 2 in the Associated Press poll. Buckeyes quarterback J.T. Barrett has returned for one final go-around in Columbus and if he’s healthy, there’s no reason to think that Ohio State can’t be one of the final four teams in the playoff this year, too.

Despite being unranked to start the season, the Hoosiers provide an intriguing challenge to the Buckeyes on Thursday night.

The last time these two teams got together in Bloomington, it took a superhuman 274-yard, three-touchdown effort from current Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott to fend off the Hoosiers in a 34-27 barnburner two seasons ago.

With former Indiana head coach Lee Corso and ESPN’s College GameDay crew in town to open the season, it’s sure to make for a fun atmosphere in Bloomington on Thursday night. Corso will also be honored by Indiana University after the first quarter for his contributions to Indiana athletics.

Here’s how you can watch the Bucks and Hoosiers battle it out in the season opener for both teams on Thursday.
