Ohio State sees lowest home turnout in 50 years for Tulsa game
Ohio State is off to a slow start this season; they are 2-1 with wins over Minnesota and Tulsa and a loss to now No.3 Oregon.
In the two wins against Minnesota and Tulsa, the Buckeyes did not look all that impressive. They beat the Golden Gophers 45-31 on the road and defeated the Golden Hurricane 41-20 at home.
They looked pretty bad in their home loss to the Ducks 35-28, especially on the defensive side of the ball.
Ohio Stadium, nicknamed the Horseshoe holds just under 105,000 people. On Saturday many people did not show up to support their team against inferior opponent Tulsa.
“Approximately 20,000 people who had tickets to Saturday’s game vs. Tulsa did not attend, according to Dan Hope of elevenwarriors.com per Ohio State. “Attendance for Saturday’s game was just 76,540, lowest for an Ohio State home game since 1971 (excluding 2020).”
