On November 11, 1916, Ohio State dominated an overmatched
Indiana squad, 46-7, at Ohio Field. Ohio State’s budding star, Chic Harley,
played just the first eight minutes and gained 107 yards before being pulled to
keep him fresh for the stretch run.
The Buckeyes finished the season undefeated at 7-0 and both
Harley and Bob Karch would take home All-American honors. Ohio State would
outscore their opponents, 258-29, and would go a
perfect 4-0 in league play to capture the Western Conference Championship.
This program is in great condition and has remained flat for over 100 years. It does possess some staining on the lower right corner of the front cover and residue stains remain on the back cover from where it
had been professionally removed from a scrapbook. Early Ohio State
programs are always sought after, but even more so when they were games that
Chic Harley was on the field.
