Columbus, Ohio (AP) -- Ohio state's board of trustees plans to vote Friday on a proposal to increase 2010-2011 football ticket prices as much as $7 apiece and basketball tickets as much as $1 each and to raise membership dues at the university's golf course as much as $70 a year.

Athletic director Gene Smith said Wednesday the increases are needed to offset increases in operating costs and losses caused by a flagging economy.

Football tickets would go up $7 to a face value of $70 for reserved seats, and would be raised $4 for faculty and staff.

Students would see a $1 increase.

Basketball tickets would be raised $1 for a reserved seat to $18.

Faculty, staff and students would pay 50 cents more.

Smith says the men's basketball program could lose more than $350,000 again this season.
