OSU trustees raise price of football tickets next year

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – The cheapest non-student ticket to the Ohio State-Michigan game in Columbus next fall will cost a record $195.

Ohio State’s Board of Trustees on Friday approved the university’s athletic council recommendations for ticket prices for next year’s seven home games. The prices will fall under five tiers ranging from $70 for the Bowling Green game to $195 for the regular season-finale against the Wolverines.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that fans buying season tickets will pay $614, a 15-percent discount for buying all seven games. Student tickets will remain $34 per game.

This season, non-student tickets ranged from $65 to $150, depending on opponent, with the top price for the Michigan State game Nov. 21.

The board also set basketball ticket prices for the 2016-2017 season at $31 to $47.
