    Is there a particular parking area for Penn State fans for the game? I’m going to the game and never was at this stadium before.

      Hi Maria,

      Usually we meet up with other Penn Staters the morning of the game at a location nearby the parking lots. Then we caravan into the stadium parking area so that we can all park together. This also creates the location of Nittanyville, Ohio! — Watch this website or Facebook for more details as we get closer to the event. We look forward to you joining us!

    I have two tickets to the OSU game. I purchased through the PSU Alumni Association. I will sell at face value & mail via US Priority mail at my expense.

      Do you still have the tickets? How much are they?

    I’m heading up for the game and don’t think I will be able to get my group out to meet by 6am. I am still going to try to head to the lot. Are you able to buy parking passes ahead of game day?

      Hi Ann,

      Parking for the normal tailgate grounds per the details above are cash only and paid game day as you enter your chosen lot. While the RV lot and others may require purchase in advance, the other lots do not. Parking fees are $20. Complete details on Ohio State game day policies and courtesy links to parking maps, etc. are found at https://ohiostatebuckeyes.com/gameday/#parking.

    Oh wow! Can you believe the Ohio State vs Penn State game?? I just found out that game was the decision maker for the Big Ten East! College football is the best isn’t it? 🙂
