Game Program from Ohio State's 21-7 Homecoming win over archrival Michigan on November 21, 1942. The Buckeyes entered the game with a 7-1 record with their archrival. Ohio State's only loss came in "The Bad Water Game" at Wisconsin when several Ohio State players went ill after drinking stale water during the train ride north.

Ohio State entered the game as an underdog after Michigan handled Notre Dame rather easily the previous week.  With many expecting another Michigan domination, it was the complete opposite.  Led by brilliant performances by Les Horvath and Paul Sarringhaus, the Buckeyes went on to defeat the Wolverines by two touchdowns. Horvath, who would claim the school's first Heisman Trophy two years later, accounted for two of the three OSU touchdowns, tossing one and catching one, in the victory.

Program is in excellent condition, fully intact with some light soiling near the top of the cover. Cover artwork done by the highly-collected Fred Machetanz.
