COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Tickets to Ohio State's home football games will cost more - more than twice as much for certain "premium" games - after the school's board of trustees approved an increase at its meeting on Thursday.

Most home game tickets will rise in price from $70 to $79, with the board also voting to permit the athletic department to designate two premier games per season when tickets will cost at least $110 and as much as $175.

The only game to be designated as a premium game this fall is Wisconsin, which will have a maximum cost of $110. Ohio State hosts archrival Michigan in even-numbered years.

The athletic department asked for the increases so it could support 36 varsity sports - the most of any college in the country.
