This is the Mecca if you are a Buckeye or college football fan in general. I got goosebumps my first time walking in. Unbelievable venue. Go Bucks!

We will continue our tradition of visiting the Ohio Stadium until we can no... More

From the moment you step into the 'Shoe, the excitement begins. From the sound of the drums as the band proudly marches into the stadium, to the essential singing of the OSU alma mater, "Carmen Ohio" at the end of every football game, there is no place as thrilling as The Ohio State University football stadium. A visit to the... More

We went to see at One Direction concert at Ohio Stadium. It's your basic stadium with food and prices, but the people were really helpful. Security was polite. Food services were also nice.

Found it best to park a little further away from stadium so it's easier to get back on a main road and away from traffic.

I'm a Buckeye, so I'm pretty biased, but Ohio Stadium (also known as the Horseshoe, or the Shoe), is amazing. It is hands down the best place to watch college football. The facility is huge and updated, and the scoreboard is enormous. The fans are enthusiastic, to put it mildly. There is plenty to eat here too, but make sure... More

We saw the One Direction concert and had a really great time! Parking and getting out after the concert was a nightmare but the stadium itself was wonderful!

OSU is a horrible football program run by a coach that will eventually be caught for recruiting violations. The stadium is lame compared to the BIG HOUSE. It is too quiet in there! Get some real fans.

The horseshoe is the best place to watch a college game NFL may be awesome there as well it holds over 100,000 excited buckeye fans. the spring game had 100,000 and its just a scrimmage of offense and defense . Great environment especially if you cant afford regular season tickets.

Impressive from the outside, especially the architecture. However, you can only walk around it (unless it's open for the public inside).
