The Buckeyes’ four opponents this weekend are all teams that they met in the 2018 season. Ohio State finished 3-1 against these opponents.
In the team’s first away contest of the season, the Buckeyes recorded their first win of the season in a 3-2 overtime victory at Louisville. Courtney Daniels and Sammy Stone both scored in the second half to tie the game, and Esther Clotet scored 1:29 into overtime to seal the Buckeye win.
