2002 national championship in Tempe! I was working as a bouncer on mill ave but dating a woman from Columbus living in LA. I was so excited when I got to the game the woman selling beer would not sell it to me because she though I was to drunk. I had worked all day at the bar serving crazy buckeye fans and had not had a drop. I was just so pumped for my first buckeye game and of course the national championship. It was awesome to say the least.
My first game was not such a good memory. It was 1987 against Indiana we lost 31 to 10. Maybe the last time OSU lost to Indiana at home I am not sure but a very bad game. Earl Bruce was coach, Urban Meyer was WR coach. Chuck Heater was DB coach. Some players on the team you may recognize were Eric Kumero, Chris Speilman, William White, Tom Tupa. Anyway I remember walking out of stadium with 90,0000 people and never have a heard a crowd so quiet. All I could hear was one jackass Indiana fan screaming as loud as he could over and over we beat the buckeyes. I still had a memory I will never forget going to my first OSU game with my dad.
Pretty sure it was the 1948 opener with Missouri. We won 21-7. I was a newspaper boy selling the "football -line-up for 5cents.I was 9 years old.
1985 WSU. Had student season tickets that year, wife & I sat 5 rows up & 5 seats in from the tunnel entrance on the North end. Awesome seats to be part of everything, sucked like hell to see anything past the 20 yard line. I can still remember the chants of "Tastes Great -- Less Filling"" with the South Stands.
Most memorable was the same year,, Iowa,, What a great game, rained to beat hell,, but you couldnt tell by the energy in that game as we knocked off #1 Hawkeyes.
The RANT is a Romper Room for Degenerates - jwe
My first game was the Super Soph's first game against SMU and they upset them and went on to win the National Championship. 1968
The only thing I remember is Hopalong ran back a kick off for a TD. I was in top row of C deck and had a great view and will never forget how the blocking formed and created a lane for him right up the sideline. Tickets could still be bought at the stadium on game day for most games. I don't remember the year or the opponent.
Greg Hare was QB and Harold Champ Henson was the man at FB. Woody was Coach, and Randy Gradishar led the defense. I was 7 or 8 yrs old. I think Archie was still a junior or senior at Eastmore. My problem is I have been to so many games that the memories of the very first game is kind of blurred. I do remember the main players. I also remember Archie's North Carolina game. I remember my parents trying to find out who this new #45 was and why he was not listed in the depth chart. Then I also remember Archie's 1st Woody Hayes Show. "So Archie" Woody said, "How many brothers and sisters do you have?" For some reason Woody disagreed and corrected Archie, and then Archie replied "That's right coach."

Sarah sorry about the Herpes.
Orange Bowl 1977! I was a kid and kept yelling at the mascot from the other team (Colorado Buffalo).
This was also my first game. Sitting in C-deck froze my butt off but enjoyed every minute of it.
