Buckeye Game Day

In June 2020, OSUDC voted to not host in-person Game Day events during 2020. 

While OSUDC is not hosting official game watch parties this season, all of our OSUDC Partner Bars will be featuring the Buckeyes games all season starting October 24 with sound on. If you are in the neighborhood, please consider supporting these local businesses by ordering carry-out or delivery.

Should Ohio State fans choose to attend one of our bars in person to watch Buckeye football, please note the COVID protocols in place at our respective bars below.

Our Buckeye Game Day raffles are one of our biggest scholarship fundraisers every year. In lieu of in-person Game Day events, we have a Football Squares fundraiser for every 2020 Buckeye football game! Winners receive a $50 gift card. For the Nebraska game on Saturday, October 24, enter the game and choose your squares here. Payment must be submitted to OSUDC within 1 hour of selecting your squares. Please click here for the complete rules and information for our 2020 scholarship fundraiser.
