Saturday will be the first time fans can attend an Ohio State home game in nearly two years, and Ryan Day wants to make sure they get there on time.
Addressing reporters today, Day directed fans to make sure they allow themselves plenty of time to get to this weekend’s game because of construction near Ohio Stadium.
The Buckeyes are hosting Oregon in a battle between the No. 3 and No. 12 teams in the latest AP poll. The last time fans were able to be in the stands at “The Horseshoe” was at the 2019 home finale against Penn State.
Because of construction near Ohio Stadium, Day urges fans to leave early for the game.

We have to imagine that the tailgating scene in Columbus will be intense on Saturday. Given how hungry all those OSU supporters will be to actually see their team in person again, we’re confident the stands will be pretty filled at kickoff.
Ohio State and Oregon will get underway at noon ET Saturday as FOX’s “Big Noon Kickoff.” The Ducks and Buckeyes were supposed to play in Eugene last fall but the COVID-19 pandemic foiled those plans.
Now, we’re finally getting the rematch of the inaugural College Football Playoff national title game.
