  • 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 ...  more »
  • We went to the Nebraska game last Saturday night. We have been to the shoe many times but this was the first night game. What an electric atmosphere. The only change they could make with selling beer ...  more »

  • Home of the Buckeyes and greatest college football stadium in the land! Even though the shoe was recently renovated to seat more people, the seating is not crowded. Every seat has a fantastic view of the field - even C deck - and the placement of bathrooms/food is such that you're never left hunting for what you want. The stadium does have wifi, but sadly it is not nearly strong enough to support 109,000 roaring fans. Also, don't expect your LTE or 3g service to work when the stadium is full.
  • The 'Shoe is truly amazing. I love the college football game day traditions that surround the 'Shoe. With the Buckeyes, and The Best Damn Band In The Land entering the side of the football stadium with the Arch before the game, to Singing Carmen Ohio, to TBDBITL creating the iconic cursive 'Ohio' on the field, Ohio Stadium is truly The Best Damn Stadium In The Land.
  • As a Michigan state fan it's always a little hard to give compliments to Ohio, but I've been here 5+ times since moving here last year and I have not had one bad experience here! The stadium is amazing and the fans are incredibly nice. It also doubles as a fantastic concert venue and have attended Buckeye Country Superfest two years in a row now, and each time has been great. They really put on a good show. So, if you are up for a football game or music this is the place to go in Ohio.
  • Great stadium. Hard not to get caught up in the excitement. Bring a seat cushion, it's totally worth it!
  • One of the most iconic collegiate stadiums you can visit. Along with the new alcohol sales this is a great stadium to visit. If you sit close to the student section you will need to wear some comfortable shoes as you will be standing the whole game.
