In an active roster that includes Heisman hopeful Ezekiel Elliot taking charge in the backfield, a trio appetizer at the quarterback position and the good graces of nearly all the preseason polls, Ohio State can boast another feature – one of the Big Ten’s most expensive tickets on a per-game basis (along with Penn State).
The Ohio Stadium (over 104,000 capacity), which is set to be the first college stadium to include beer and wine in its transactions, rings in at a couple of dimes over $221 when buying home game tickets at the box office.
In what’s been the home turf for Purdue since 1924, Ross-Ade Stadium dwarfs Ohio State’s, charging $43 in home game ticket sales.
