In an exciting win against Wisconsin, the Ohio State Buckeyes came out on top as Big Ten champs. However, that wasn’t enough to clench them a spot in the playoffs to compete for a national championship. Instead, our Buckeyes earned themselves a soft place at the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic.
Ohio State will face off against USC on December 29 at 8:30pm at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX.
Getting tickets will be no stroll through Buckeye Grove, though.
Fans have to request tickets through OSU’s athletic department’s official TicketMaster site and are not promised. Land-Grant Holy Land reports that if you’ve got some marks on your record—AKA you’ve flipped card, gotten too wasted in a stadium, or have been an otherwise reckless fan—you may not have a shot at Cotton Bowl tickets.
The TicketMaster webpage states:
“You may lose your ticket privileges if you have engaged in conduct that is determined, by either OSU or the NCAA, to be in violation of any NCAA rule or if, in OSU’s reasonable discretion, you have otherwise taken any action that jeopardizes the eligibility of OSU’s programs or its student-athletes.”
Fans are allowed to submit a request for up to 12 individual tickets, starting at $165 each.
