August 31 vs. Florida Atlantic Owls 🎟️

September 21st vs. Miami (Ohio) RedHawks 🎟️

  •  Secondary Market Average Price: $164
  • Secondary Market Cheapest Ticket: $89

After a visit to Indiana, Ohio State returns home for a date with the Miami RedHawks. This is the Buckeyes’ second cheapest home game of the season so, if you want to see them before prices soar, this is a date to target. 

October 5th vs. Michigan State Spartans 🎟️

  • Secondary Market Average Price: $299
  • Secondary Market Cheapest Ticket: $176

This one’s a prime-time, nationally broadcast game for a reason. The Michigan State program might not have much offensive firepower at the moment, but their defense will ensure the Buckeyes have to work hard for every yard. Remember this date.

  • Secondary Market Cheapest Ticket: $188

After struggling last season, when they were expected to make a run at the Big 10 title, Wisconsin will be looking to make a statement this year. Coming into Columbus will give them a chance to do just that, but Ohio State will likely have too much quality at the end of the day.

November 9th vs. Maryland Terrapins 🎟️

  •  Secondary Market Average Price: $198
  • Secondary Market Cheapest Ticket: $113

Maryland’s new head coach Mike Locksley has a strong pedigree, but turning around a Maryland football program with now-infamous culture issues is a major task. Ohio State will be a favorite in this one and should take care of business comfortably.

  • Secondary Market Average Price: $353
