We do not advise trying to enter the game with a student ticket if you are not a student. You are able to upgrade a student ticket to a public ticket, but this must be done in person at the Athletic Ticket Office.

Here is the official response from Ohio State: Patrons using an Ohio State University Student Football ticket for admittance to any home football game will be required to show a valid autumn semester BUCK ID or dependent spouse OSU ID at the gates for admittance. To obtain a ticket which does not require a BUCK ID for entry, the student ticket must be upgraded to the public price, in person only, at the OSU Athletic Ticket Office in the southeast corner of the Schottenstein Center.
