Game Program from Ohio State's 13-3 loss to top ranked Michigan on November 20, 1948. Though Michigan would be crowned National Champions after the game, it's not what fans in Columbus remember this weekend for.  Their hero, three-time All-American Chic Harley, returned home to Columbus with thousands greeting him at the train station. A parade would be thrown in his honor after being away from Ohio Stadium for decades because of mental illness. The Buckeyes finished the 1948 season at 6-3 under another three-time All-American, Wes Fesler.
