Ohio Stadium (osu)
It’s the end April and every year at this time, we have the annual spring football game at Ohio Stadium.
This year the theme will be Scarlet, Gray and Pink. It’ll be this Saturday at Ohio Stadium and presented by Nationwide.
The Ohio state men’s lacrosse team will host Air Force at 11 a.m. in the first part of the doubleheader, with the football scrimmage beginning at 1:30 p.m. The Big Ten Network will televise both contests. Gates will open at 10 a.m.
Tickets are $5 in advance and $10 on Saturday at the stadium.
OSU coaches will wear pink caps and the football team will sport jerseys with pink accents that will be auctioned off to benefit the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research.
Saturday’s forecast calls for rain throughout the day. Fans are encouraged to dress accordingly because umbrellas cannot be used in Ohio Stadium.
Last year, Buckeye fans set national records when 95,722 were on hand at the Horseshoe for the 2009 football Spring Game and 30,192 watched the lacrosse action.
