Ohio Stadium

Ohio Stadium History

Ohio Stadium is one of the oldest venues in college football and, as the home of the Ohio State Buckeyes football team, it is also one of the most popular. The stadium was expanded in 1948 and 1991 before going under a renovation in 2001. Ohio State began hosting football games at Ohio Field back in 1913 but it quickly became apparent that the venue was not able to hold the ever-increasing crowds the team attracted and plans were set in motion to build a bigger stadium for the Buckeyes. Architect Howard Dwight Smith was hired to design the stadium and conceptualized the horseshoe shape which has become the identifying characteristic of the stadium and given birth to its nickname of The Horseshoe, or simply The Shoe.
