If you have never been to the horseshoe for a game or halftime performance, this is one incredible stadium! With the newly added lights, hopefully they can start having more evening games or performances in the future. Nothing like a capacity crowd at Ohio Stadium to get the goosebumps going when the OSU Marching Band takes the field.

My first experience of US college (American Football) I was taken by a friend who went to Ohio State and I loved it amazing Stadium and the match was brilliant. But for me the best part was half time and the marching band it was brilliant a great day out!

The 'Shoe is one of the grandest stadiums in the world with an exceptional collegiate atmosphere and the best damn band in the land. If you are a true fan of college football, this is not a stadium to be missed.

The atmosphere is electric. There are no fans more loyal than Buckeye fans, and i always love being a part of such a positive environment. Go. And GO... More

If you have never been you need to go it is simple as that. The atmospehere is like nothing else. The history, the building itself is a sight to see even if you are not coming in for a game.

Being from Hawaii, going to an OSU football game was a treat. Although my husband is an OSU grad, he worried whether we would be able to get tickets for the game. We got tickets from the StubHub and the rep was very helpful in advising us which seats would be the best for us. We took a taxi to... More

Nothing like a crisp November day to watch Michigan Triumph over the Buckeyes. It may have been a few years, but memories last a long time.

Even though I'm from Minnesota & still felt compelled to see this impressive stadium even if it wasn't game day. It's stately size is awe inspiring!! Blows my mind to think of 100,000 people in this arena.

Cannot get much better than watching Buckeye football in Ohio Stadium! Have been attending games at The Shoe since the late 60s as a student. (Michigan fans need not comment on my comment!)

The atmosphere at the football games are amazing! Going to see the Marching Band (TBDBITL) is worth it by itself! Even with the new renovations, you can see the original stadium and can appreciate the history.
