The Ohio State Department of Athletics firmly encourages fans to protect themselves from potential ticket fraud leading into the game Saturday between No. 2 Ohio State and No. 3 Michigan.

  • The Ohio State Athletics Ticket Office, Ticketmaster, and Buckeyes Ticket Exchange are the only authorized sources for tickets to Ohio State Athletics events.
  • All mobile tickets must be presented with a dynamic (moving) barcode or on your phone’s digital wallet using tap-n-go technology.  QR codes and screenshots are NOT valid for entry into Ohio Stadium.

Fans purchasing tickets from unauthorized sources (including StubHub, Vivid Seats, CraigsList, EBay, and ticket brokers) assume the risk that tickets purchased are counterfeit or the barcodes have been invalidated. Any fan attempting to enter Ohio Stadium with counterfeit or invalid barcodes will be denied entry.

Ticket holders wishing to transfer or sell their valid Ohio State tickets have many options available through their online ticket accounts. Details on mobile entry, ticket forwarding, and ticket resale options can be found here.
