SPRING GAME INFORMATION

Below is a press release from Ohio State football sports information director Shelly Poe about this month's Spring Game ...

COLUMBUS — Ohio State will conclude its 2010 spring football practice Saturday, April 24, with the Spring Game presented by Nationwide at Ohio Stadium.

The Buckeye men's lacrosse team will host Air Force in an 11 a.m. match, followed by the football Scarlet-Gray scrimmage at 1:30 p.m. The Big Ten Network will televise both games.

It will be a Scarlet, Gray and Pink day, with OSU coaches wearing pink caps and the football team sporting jerseys with pink accents that will be auctioned to benefit the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research.


During the games, there will be contests, give-aways, interactive scoreboard videos, autograph sessions with Ohio State student-athletes, and a football halftime kicking contest to win an Ultimate Buckeye Prize Pack. OSU students will have a chance to form a football pregame tunnel to welcome the squads onto the field.

Fans can purchase tickets at the Athletics Ticket Office, online at OhioStateBuckeyes.com, and through Ticketmaster. The price of each ticket is $5 in advance and $10 day of the game (day of game sales are cash only). Ohio State students get into the game free with a valid ID. Children 6 and under will be admitted free of charge. Seating is general admission.

Open parking will be available in most of the lots surrounding 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.
