  1. Visit http://www.go.osu.edu/2014TicketLottery and log-in using the Account ID and Password listed on the other side of this paper.
  2. On the left side of the screen you should see “Hello (your name).” Click EDIT MY PROFILE and make sure that the contact information listed for you is correct. This address is where your tickets will be delivered. If correct, click SAVE at the bottom.
  3. Click HOME.
  4. In the box “2014 Alumni Football Lottery,” click on VIEW INVOICE, or in the black bar labeled “Your Invoice” click NEW INVOICES.
  5. You will next see “Process a new invoice” and 2014 Alumni Football Lottery will be selected and the invoice total populated. Click CONTINUE at the bottom of the screen.
  6. If you desire to make a donation to the Alumni Association, scroll down to “Donation to Alumni Association” and add a donation total (using only whole numbers). Click “Add to Invoice.” This donation total will be charged to your account immediately after you click SUBMIT CC#. ​​
  7. If you do not desire to make a donation, click SKIP. At the next page specify any special seating requirements you may have.
  8. Also on this page, select either “Yes, include me in the lottery for ALL games” or “No, only include me for regular priced games.” This determines whether you will be considered for the Virginia Tech and Michigan games, which cost more than other games on the 2014 schedule.
  9. If you wish to sit with friends, enter the ACCOUNT ID(s) and NAME(s) of these people. Please note that this will only be considered if you win the same game as the friend you list, and even that is
    not a guarantee.
  10. Next, choose LOTTERY DEFERRED PAYMENT. Click on continue, then select ENTER A NEW CREDIT CARD as your payment option. Enter payment info:
    • Enter credit card number without spaces or dashes
    • Make sure the expiration date on your card is entered correctly
    • Enter the CIN number (last 3 digits on the back of the card; 4 digits on the front for AmEx)
    • Click on the check box on the left of “I AGREE TO TERMS OF USE,“ and review the terms.

Your credit card will only be billed for football tickets if you are successful in the lottery.

If you complete the process successfully, you will receive a confirmation e-mail. Print this e-mail.
