Supply and demand. Relatively speaking, most major conference football teams have stadiums that are similar in size. However, Ohio State has the largest overall student body, which creates one of the largest group of alumni. Let's also not forget that it is near impossible for the general public to buy a ticket from the OSU ticket office for any game.
