The already expensive cost of attending a college football game might get even steeper for Ohio State fans.

According to a report from the Columbus Dispatch, Ohio State University Board of Trustees will discuss a proposed price increase for football tickets for the 2019 season.

The proposal would bring prices close to the 2017 total, according to the Dispatch. Season ticket holders would be looking at a $702 price tag for reserved seating for the 2019 season, an eight percent increase. Box and club seats would also see an eight percent increase, climbing to $851.

Student ticket prices would remain at the same price — $34 per game or $238 for the season — and would be fixed through the 2020 season. The highest priced game for fans would be Penn State ($198 for a reserved seat) and the cheapest would be Florida Atlantic ($60).

Ohio State has had some troubles with attendance this season (relatively speaking), so a price increase seems a bit surprising.

The Buckeyes are currently 9-1 on the season and will travel to Maryland to round out the road portion of the 2018 schedule. They’ll be back in Columbus for the season finale against Michigan on Nov. 24.
