The defending Western Conference Champions entered the game with Denison on October 27, 1917, with a perfect 3-0 record and yet to be scored upon. On a rainy day and a muddy track, Ohio State had no problem scoring touchdowns.  A couple long runs highlighted a 67-0 beatdown of the Granville team.

Ohio State would go on to win the Western Conference Championship and complete their second consecutive undefeated season. Their lone hiccup was a 0-0 tie against Auburn in a fundraising game for the American soldiers.  Ohio State's Chic Harley became Ohio State's first two-time All-American and two years later would be honored for a third time.

This program is complete in near mint condition with the original owner writing the date of the game at the top of the cover and small notations at the top of the inside cover.
