You've got to go for a football game

The stadium is worth seeing empty - you can feel the history here - but for an Ohio State football game it's over the top. Game day is a well oiled machine: friendly people will... read more

The stadium is worth seeing empty - you can feel the history here - but for an Ohio State football game it's over the top. Game day is a well oiled machine: friendly people will get more than100,000 people parked, to the stadium, in the door and to their seats, refreshments in hand. On a recent visit, I found the...

OSU football...a once-in-a-lifetime experience for me. Highest compliments to the stadium's ADA office which saved the day when we discovered our seats were actually 19 rows up....a perfect experience for my 90 year old Dad returning Buckeye.

There is no greater rivalry in sports than "The Game," the annual Ohio State-Michigan football game. Before entering into the Shoe, one must attend event is the Skull Session held at St John's arena. The Best Damn Band In The Land (TBDBITL) "warms up" for the game 2 1/2 hours before kick-off by performing their pre-game routine and half time... More

My first game in the Shoe and it was amazing. The record attendance was set at 110,000+ and with all those people the concessions still moved quickly and for females the bathrooms had no lines and were very clean. The men however had long lines in their bathrooms, but they seemed to move quickly. Getting into the stadium moved quickly... More

The Shoe is not one of the nicest stadiums in the Big Ten. The walk to the upper deck is up stairs, not ramps. The angle of the upper deck seating is very severe and unsettling. The stadium is very dated. It is also full of advertising signs that flash ads, even during the National Anthem. It is nice that... More

Was a GREAT experience! Took city bus from Crossroads that specializes in game day transport and well worth it! Staff at the stadium was awesome. Entered quickly through medical needs gate and easy to find public elevators for my husband. Seats a little tight but stayed warm!!

Now in its sixtieth year, The Skull Session is a giant pep rally, which begins 2 hours and thirty minutes before kickoff of every home game. The band will play the entire pregame and halftime performance, and the team will enter the Arena, where coach Meyer will give a brief talk. The visiting team band may also perform; and one... More

We have been fortunate to be able to attend a couple games a year the past two years. O-H; I-O and other chants in this loud stadium make this experience so worth it. Go early. Be prepared to pay $20 to park.

Lots of people walking to and from the game, I don't advise trying to drive to the stadium it self unless you want to wait for all the people walking to get out of your way. Very crowded, nearly sold out but so worth it! Great atmosphere and crowd cheering. Same prices for food and drinks and pro games. Small... More
