If Ohio State fans are looking to cover Miami’s Sun Life Stadium in scarlet Jan. 3 to watch the the No. 7 Buckeyes (12-1, 8-1) take on No. 12 Clemson (10-2, 7-1) in the Discover Orange Bowl, they will likely need to shell out some green to do so.
Face value price for a student ticket was $110, compared to $165 for the general public, Assistant Athletic Director Brett Scarbrough told The Lantern Thursday in an email.
OSU was required to purchase 17,500 tickets for the football team’s game against Clemson, and as of Thursday, there were “approximately 7,500 committed,” according to the email.
Of the 1,000 tickets allocated out for students, so far, 584 have been purchased. The email said that number does not take in to account any student who bought tickets and travel through the Office of Student Life tour package, though.
According to the email, the Orange Bowl distributes any unsold inventory to military personnel and youth groups in South Florida. OSU has already given back 9,000 tickets from its allotment for that purpose.
Kickoff between OSU and Clemson is set for 8:30 p.m.
