COLUMBUS (AP) — It’ll likely cost most fans $9 more to watch their beloved Buckeyes this fall.

Ohio State’s Athletic Council will recommend on Friday to the board of trustees that football ticket prices should be raised from $70 to $79 starting this fall. Also, two home games a year may be designated as premium games, with higher ticket prices.

Athletic director Gene Smith confirmed the proposed changes on Wednesday. The proposed increases would help fill in a gap in the athletic budget because there are only seven home football games in upcoming years.

The cost of faculty tickets ($54) and student tickets ($32) will also likely rise along with greens fees at the university’s golf courses, but no price has been set.

The board of trustees meets Jan. 31-Feb. 1.
