Ohio State fans looking to attend "The Game" in 2016 will be paying a little more than usual. Friday, Ohio State's Board of Trustees approved "recommendations" for football ticket prices - and the Michigan contest will run fans $195 face value. It'll cost $60 more than the next-most-expensive game, which is Nebraska.
Here's more, via The Columbus Dispatch:
The board approved all of the recommendations made early in the week by the university’s athletic council, meaning the Buckeyes’ seven home games next season will fall under five different tiered prices: $70 for Bowling Green and Tulsa; $80 for Rutgers and Indiana; $90 for Northwestern; $135 for Nebraska; and $195 for the regular-season finale against Michigan.
Fans purchasing season tickets will spend $614, a 15 percent discount for buying all seven games. The current student ticket price of $34 per game will remain unchanged in 2016.
Ohio State fans - are you willing to shell out nearly $200 for face value, or is it too much? Somehow, regardless, we imagine it's going to be a sellout.
