The 2013 Ohio State Spring Football Game will be moved to Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati, home of the Bengals, due to  renovations at Ohio Stadium in the seating areas.  It will be the first time the Buckeyes have played at Paul Brown Stadium since the 2002 season when the Buckeyes edged the Bearcats 23-19, enroute to a an undeafeated (14-0) and national championship season. 

Paul Brown Stadium opened in 2000.  One of the biggest reasons for the move down by the river side is head coach Urban Meyer who requested the location being a 1986 graduate of the University of Cincinnati.  The last time the Buckeyes did not play their Spring Game at Ohio Stadium was back in 1999, when the game was played at Columbus Crew Stadium as Ohio Stadium under went major renovations lasting three years increasing the seating from 92,000 to 106,000 by lowering the field.
