Yes the students anbd band take those corners too. Last year, because of lack of funds, I had to buy endzone tickets. If I knew then, what you're telling me now (some redzone tickets are available), I would choose the redzone side, because A.) I love the band, and B.), I am a ham, and love being on TV. I can't tell you which side is which though. Last year, OSU wore the white jerseys, and were on the 130's side of the field. I presume this year will be the same. Unfortunately, I am in 110, but it was a guessing game for me, since I bought my tickets right after the MIchigan game, gambling we would bei nthe Fiesta. If you're looking to be around OSU fans though, don't fret, they will fill the stadium, because the locals here in AZ, are Buckeye fans in general. Notre Dame found that out big time last year...

Oh wow, didn't know they flew out of cincy. Allegiant is pretty reliable, but if there is plane trouble, they usually don't have a backup on site, and the delays are sometimes long. My wife flies them more than I do, but other than the aforementioned long delays, they've never been a problem. The planes are safe, usually md80's, with the jackscrew problem fixed of course. You'll love the Mesa airport, former AFB airport, small, easy in, easy out. You'll get off the plane, walking down the steps, like you're the president lol. Get up early on the 1st, stop at http://mesamarket.com , right around the corner from the airport. It is very similar to caesers creek flea market, so you can get some gifts cool inexpensive for the family

The "RED ZONE" is most likely only open to band members and select students. That would be the 130/140 end zone. If available, I would take those seats. It was rockin' on that side last year. I made this video public just now, it was in endzone section 119. https://www.facebook.com/stantmann/videos/vb.663647495/10153352506672496/?type=3&theater

Since you are flying from Indiana, you may want to get the tickets now, no sense on taking a chance. My guess is the will sell out soon, but you are rolling the dice. I posted below, that you could take allegiant from south bend to mesa, that might save you quite a bit of cash so you can spend more on tickets. I'm not sure if my guy still has tickets (number in the main article), you can try. 3rd party agents may have already bought them all...

I sat up there one year, it's not too bad. I mean you won't need binoculors or anything like that. Like I said above, get the APS Stadium Club tickets though - Trust me, it is worth every penny.

Allegiantair flies out of south bend to mesa, that might be a cheaper option if you're not too far from there

I bought section 110 last week. I knew i had a 50/50 chance. I'll either be on the Buckeyes side, or I'll be the one carrying the 2nd O as it goes around the stadium.
Comment 04 Dec 2016
119, 120 endzone is open. The other end is for the bands I'm sitting in 110, i presume that is osu's side based on last year, i could be wrong though, just an educated guess.

The Fiesta Bowl guy's cell is (602)390-9907. It was on his business card , so I presume it is ok to give out. Obviously office #, in the article should be called first.

OSU can pass - In every good weather game, every single one, Barret lit it up. I've never seen a year like this with rain or heavy wind in about half of the games. You'll see the return of JT in the dome in Phoenix. It's not like the opposing teams were lighting it up either, but OSU's secondary was great in every game. If you are going to be disappointed, be disappointed in the offensive line. They've failed to protect Barret at critical times, and create holes for the Weber during crucial moments.

Saying they would lose on a neutral fan makes me question whether you are really a buckeye fan. PSU was very fortunate to win that game, yes special teams are part of the game, but the bounce, it was the bounce after the FG kick that was fortunate. if it bounces 3 feet left, osu probably goes on to win that game. OSU's secondary is by far the best in the nation. The weather in Happy Valley equalized that. Last night in the dome, OSU would have beaten PSU, similar to Nebraska. UM, that's a whole different ballgame, hard to predict anything in that rivalry. If yu go by recent history, OSU wins close, or they blow them out.

First off, let's not count that half win/ half loss tie BS. That's the difference in the percentages between UM and OSU. OSU has 53 ties, Um has only 36. Bacially tat is a difference of 8.5 wins and 8.5 losses - Dumb.

If you go straight percentages and throw out the ties, OSU is a lot closer than you think 886-321, and UM is 935-333. These come roughly  out at .7340 and .7373. If you throw in the 12 vacated victories, OSU would be on their heals at .7366. A difference of 3 victories.

Ok, so the wins can't reappear, and the ties do count.  Basically what this means is OSU needs to win 23 more games than UM to catch up.

Just got my tickets today in the mail. Man, I hope Alabama wins...

Comment 02 Dec 2016
Danny Kanell and Russillolo both have OSU at #4 after this weekend, because "The committee has to punish them for not winning their conference". Booger had them at 2 after this weekend. My thought is, the only team that gets punished putting the Buckeyes at#4, would be The Tide. Bucks at #4 is not going to happen.

No, you have to root for Alabama. <in my best Dave Wannstedt voice> -And I'll tell you why.

I am pretty sure the 4 playoff teams will be Alabama, OSU, Clemson, and somebody else, but with an Alabama loss, it actually puts things in extreme chaos. Knowing OSU and Alabama can't be opposite each other, they may end up having Clemson #1, and OSU would be playing in The Peach a couple hours from Clemson campus. Let's not divuldge deep into scenarios here, but you can see how thet would actually be a bad thing for OSU.

Any of you that want to play Michigan again need to look at it differently. I could care less about Michigan being good, or getting in. Even if they lose to OSU in the playoffs, it is good for their recruiting. Keep them out, we don't want them to get any edges in recruiting on us.
