  • Loudest college stadium I have ever been too. Lots of great seats to choose from as the stadium is built up instead of out. For sure a check off the bucket list.
  • Not an OSU fan but you have to respect the "Horseshoe!" Lots of history in there and seems to continue to be a great place to watch nearly any kind of sporting event.
  • A great place to watch The Ohio State Football team play. Food is over priced, but that is to be expected. Make sure you get in the restroom line before halftime or you will be waiting all of halftime. Walk around to each food vendor, they all sell different types of food. I enjoy the roar of the crowd.
  • It's big and the seats we got were great. There was enough foot room in the benches too.
  • For food and drinks there is aways a wait and it's expensive. But it's the same on every stadium. There are so many gates to enter so you don't have to show up 80min before the game starts which was great. The one thing that is not really great is parking. Beacuse its on campus, if you go to watch a game during school, you will have to show up hours in advance to be able to park close to the stadium.

Where to stay in Columbus

Because Columbus serves as one of the country's major convention centers, its downtown offers comfortable rooms at all price levels. Hotels in the central part of town not only keep you close to all of the city's major attractions, but also provide you with modern amenities that include 24-hour room service, fitness centers, spa services, and on-site restaurants and bars. To stay in the city for a fraction of the price, consider an inn or motel near the Interstate exits.
