1916 was a stellar season for Ohio State, led by the school's first three-time All-American, Chic Harley.  The Buckeyes outscored their opponents 258-29 that season, but racked up most of those points in a single game. 

On October 14, 1916, Ohio State welcomed in-state opponent Oberlin into Columbus. The Buckeyes scored touchdowns on their first two offensive plays and the flood gates were open. The score was 33-0 by the end of the first quarter and a staggering 67-0 at the half.  Fullback Dick Boesel had four touchdowns and halfback Fred Norton had five touchdowns.  The final score of 128-0 still stands as the greatest margin of victory in program history, most points by OSU in a single game, and the only time that the Buckeyes have eclipsed the century mark.

Just about 800 spectators were in attendance at Ohio Field that so the rarity of both a ticket and program being located for this game is magnified.  A couple programs are said to have survived, but this is the only ticket from this game known to exist.
