A signed program from Jim Tressel's Ohio State debut against the Akron Zips at Ohio Stadium. Tressel and the Buckeyes beat the visitors, 28-14, on September 8, 2001. The Buckeyes would go on to finish 7-5 on the season, but it was a promise kept that made this a memorable season for Ohio State fans. After saying that his team would make the fans proud in his first trip to Ann Arbor, the Buckeyes stunned the favored Wolverines that led to a complete 180 in this long-time rivalry. Tressel added the famous Woody Hayes inscription of "Yea Ohio!" in front of his signature.
