Ohio State Details Costs of DC Trip

After the Ohio State football team won the College Football Playoff Championship, one of the rewards they received was a trip to the White House, where they were congratulated by President Barack Obama.

However, just because it was a reward does not mean the trip itself was free.

Airfare to fly the travel party to Washington, D.C. was $194,895 and two bus trips cost an additional $13,700.

Ohio State estimates they spent another $22,820 on food, although a final invoice had yet to be submitted for those expenses.

The Buckeyes excursion took place April 20.
