StubHub has them starting out at $105 per ticket,
SeatGeek has them starting out at $100 per ticket, and if you have a code, you can get $20 off the first purchase, one code per purchase.

I'm sure there's others, but here are a couple options at relatively cheap prices

That's a Buckeye touchdown!

listen to a podcast!

Thanks Aphilly02. I spend a decent amount of time with earbuds in my auditory canals but haven't heard of a Seat Geek discount code.

Is there a specific podcast you are referring to?

If you like NBA, I believe both the Woj Pod and Lowe Post are sponsored by Seat Geek

Got it, thanks for the pro-tip 51!

I'll have to check one out, sounds like it'd be worth the hour investment for a $20 ticket discount!

If you go into Google and type "Seatgeek Promo Codes" you should be able to find a $20 one pretty easily. I've seen them advertise all over YouTube as well. 

What we have currently available is what we have available.

I live in Chicago and this game is a tradition every 4 years here. The best bet is to wait until the kids get back in school and buy them then. The only tickets you are seeing are season ticket owners, prices will get cut in half from what you see now. Same as with ohio state tickets at home, wait until the kids get back, buy from kids who think $80 in their pocket that day is > the experience of the game

Good morning B44!

I too inhabit the suburbs of Chicago and I'm curious how that works with the kids getting back to school.

Are you indicating that it's possible to purchase student tickets for these games?

Yup -- students sell them all the time. Most don't go to the games, at least historically. Now that NW is a little better they won't be as easy to come by. I love it, start drinking downtown at noon, hop on the brown line, stop up in lincoln park at 1pm for a drink, wrigley at 3pm for a drink and then head to evanston at 4:30

You have to buy season tickets to get the Bucks game if you get tix directly from the school.

Oh damn it. I just called NU's ticket office to confirm. Indeed.

I remember a few years back when we were playing at Northwestern; it was actually cheaper to buy Northwestern season tickets than the single game ticket from Ohio State.  

Wonder if that'll play out that way again.

I was at the Michigan game last year in Evanston. PLENTY of tix available at good prices.

Northwestern has a new QB this year. 5* transfer out of Clemson. Could make for an expensive ticket this year depending on how many wins come.

Just looked at the NW schedule. They have a bye before us (how convenient is that for them?)

That being said they also have MSU at home, then on the road at Wisconsin and Nebraska before us. They legit could be on a three game losing streak coming into the game against us.

Bucks also have a bye the week before.

I’m surprised by the people expecting to get tix much below $100. There’s a ton of OSU fans in Chicago and it is going to be a night game. OSU fans outside of Chicago will want to go — it’s a great 3 day weekend where your Saturday would be free to venture the city (what a great sales pitch to the wife or girlfriend). There will be plenty of demand to go to the game. NW isn’t a bad team, either (It’s a rematch of the big ten title game).

StubHub is your best best on tix. Some might get lucky and snipe a couple cheap if they check at the right time but I’d be real surprised if prices go much under $100. There’s a lot of people that will want to go to this one.

Indeed.. I went to one of these a few years back and it was 80/20 if not 90/10 OSU fans in the crowd.

Wife & I and some friends are going as well.  Any recommended establishments to hit up prior to the game?

in Chicago or Evanston? Where are you staying? Be glad to give you some great buckeye spots, just need to know where you plan to be (Chicago is a big city)

Evanston Friday night then heading to downtown Chicago on sat night, staying along the rive near Trump tower.  Was looking for mainly recommendations for Evanston, figured we could find enough shenanigans in Chicago but I'm open to all advice

Teen Navy #2 should have a ticket, after she goes thru orientation and starts classes in Sep. My understanding is all NU students get free admission to all sporting events.

Bumping this thread because I'll be going to the Northwestern game and am still looking for tickets (I live in Milwaukee so I'll be making the quick trip down). Lowest prices on the third party sites are around 200 but I would like to pay less than that if I can. If anyone has anything available let me know. Go Bucks!

HS

Me too...heading to the game with some friends.  Better to wait until we get there & scalp from students??

That's a possibility. Assuming they go down closer to gametime when people get desperate to sell them off.
