So I think venues are only as good as the games that you see there bc atmosphere is a fickle beast. So I will list my favorite away games/venues in context of what I saw.
1.) OSU v. Miami 2003 ASU. Setting atmosphere and game make this probably the best Buckeye game I will see ever, regardless of what else happens in the next 5o years I'm alive.
2.) OSU at PSU, 2012. Great setting, night game, white out. Passionate fans on the brink of suicide in the immediate wake of JoePa made the visit very interesting. There were people holding vigil over the old location of the JoePa statue, very peculiar.
3.) OSU at Wisky 2003. Yeah we lost but in dramatic fashion in the rain. Wisconsin is a great place to see a game, great venue. Too bad I am 0-2 there.
4.) Osu at MSU 2012: Great redemptive win, cool little stadium, good tailgating.
Honorable Mention: 2002 OSU at Purdue-don't care that Ross-Ade sucks most Saturdays, this one did not and was the most exciting finish, except maybe the 2003 NC game, I've ever seen. Holy Buckeye were those Boiler fans pissed when Buckeye fans congregated after the game in the stands and did our celebratory thing (Carmen Ohio etc.) they started throwing beer bottles, full water bottles at us. I was in College at the time enjoyed the fervor, especially from the angry Boiler fans (still like the whole Boiler Up thing).
2002 OSU at Illinois: Overtime thriller, again. Probably one of the last times Illini fans felt that kind of passion and anguish. Plus a great game.
Others I've liked included Cleveland Browns stadium for the game against Toledo I think a few years ago. Didn't like the Big House (toilet bowl seats too tight). Sun Life Stadium for Miami FL OSU regular season game was a stinker. I saw games at the Swamp and that venue is great except in the early season everyone reeks from B.O. by the time the second quarter starts. Saw an overtime game in Notre Dame a few years back when they played UW and Washington, that was fun too except it was pouring rain by the end of it.
Just a few thoughts. But my true favorite is the 'Shoe. So many more great games seen there.
