Great stadium, don't forget to look at the Rotunda on the North side of the stadium if you come in a different gate. The view from the upper rows of C deck isn't too great, you need Eagle Eyes from up there. Great Football and the Band along with a great Stadium make for a great time if you can... More

It took me 7 years but I finally made it and was at 3 games in one season. Great place, great team, and the best Band in the Big Ten. Great experience. Do plan on where to park. The last time we took a bus into the stadium and avoided the crowd after the game. Typical football snacks and a... More

Affectionately called "The Shoe" by students like myself, Ohio Stadium is home to the powerhouse Ohio State Buckeyes and The Best Damn Band In The Land. Football here is insane and is matched by a usually incredible halftime performance from The Ohio State University Marching Band. The huge student section taking over the South Stands creates an electric vibe that... More

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.

Tradition. Football in Columbus. Nothing better. Theres a Donatos in there too :D! I was pleased with everything, and thats not just because I’m a diehard Buckeye fan. Well, maybe it was. 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
