Everything you need to know about traveling to Columbus, Ohio for the Ohio State Game. <i><font color="#cc0000"> <P> <b>UPATED 7/17: </b>Ticket Pricing has been updated.

Updated 7/17... (Ticket Pricing has been updated)

Approximately 3,600 tickets will be made available to Wolfpack Club donors. The Wolfpack Club cut off should be around 2,000 points. Confirmations of Ohio State tickets should be sent out around June 30th.

Ohio State is on the quarter system. The Fall quarter does not start until Sept 24th. Even though OSU won the national championship, and ticket demand will be at an all time high, tickets should be slightly easier to obtain since classes have not started.

Since Ohio Stadium seats 102,000 people, you do not worry about not finding a ticket. If you really want to make the trip to Columbus, tickets should be the easy part if you are willing to pay market price.

The easiest and cheapest way to obtain tickets for the OSU game will be simply to buy them in the parking lot before the game. Posters from Bucknuts.com said that tickets should be able to be purchased between $75-$100. Face value of the tickets are $49.50.
