COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Ohio State University Department of Athletics is encouraging fans coming to the homecoming game Saturday to arrive early and allow plenty of time for parking due to construction projects in and around campus.

The game between Ohio State and Maryland is set for a 12:05 p.m. kickoff.

In addition to homecoming, former football captains and a group of 2020 Olympians with Ohio State ties will be recognized during the game.

To help fans out, Ohio State has set up information online for parking, which you can view here.

Once parked, the university is reminding fans to load their mobile tickets to their device before arriving at the stadium.

Ohio State has also provided the following information for getting into the game.

Here’s How to Scan Your Phone at the Pedestal 

There are two ways for fans to scan their tickets at a pedestal ticket scanner:

If you have a barcode on your mobile ticket, simply scan the dynamic barcode below the screen on the ticket pedestal.

If you don’t have a barcode and are using a mobile wallet “tap n go” ticket, tap the icon on the top of the pedestal scanner with the back of your phone.

Additional Helpful Measures 

  • Have your ticket or your barcode “up” and visible on your phone before going through the metal detectors.
  • Ticket office trouble shooting booths are located at Gates 5, 11, 14, the North Rotunda and behind the South Stands for those who are having difficulties.
  • No mobile phone? The ticket office can print tickets at the Schottenstein Center ticket office (1-800-GOBUCKS) starting the Thursday before home games. On game day, visit one of the ticket trouble shooting booths.
  • The official Ohio State Buckeyes app is an easy way to manage tickets and parking. Download the app from the App Store and Google Play.
  • The gates open two hours before kickoff.
