A near mint program and a full ticket from the famous Snow Bowl game played between Ohio State and Michigan on November 25, 1950. The game featured brothers Bob Momsen and Tony Momsen on opposite sidelines. Bob Momsen blocked a Michigan punt and Ohio State reccovered inside the Wolverines red zone. After three straight plays that pushed them backwards, Heisman Trophy winner Vic Janowicz connected on an improbable 38-yard field goal with the wind swirling and the field goal post nearly invisible to give the Buckeyes a 3-0 edge.  Right before the half, ironically, Tony Momsen blocked an OSU punt and fell on it for what would end up the game-winning touchdown.  Michigan came into Columbus and knocked off Wes Fesler's squad, 9-3. The field goal by Janowicz would later be called one of the "Greatest Feats in American Sports" by a panel of sports writers. 

Program is near mint condition with some very light soiling to the cover. Ticket has a vertical crease on the left side of the ticket.  Original owner wrote in ink pen, "1950 The Day of the Big Snow!" on the front and on the back Robert L. Zint wrote "I WAS THERE" and signed it.
