Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer watches his team during their Spring NCAA college football practice Tuesday, March 4, 2014, in Columbus, Ohio.
COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State has dropped the price of tickets for Saturday’s spring football game to $5 in hopes of attracting a big crowd to Ohio Stadium Saturday afternoon.
The announcement was made Friday morning that the school had dropped its prior, head-scratching plan to charge $20 for walk-up ticket sales.
"I have a one-track mind and it’s on recruiting," Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said. "I’d love to have 85,000 people there on a 72-degree day in Columbus, Ohio.
"My wife was the first one to say something (about the $20 tickets). I just think it’s great (dropping the price). It will help us recruit a bunch of people and enjoy a day in the Horseshoe. I just want to try to make it a great day for the fans."
