Game Program from Ohio State's 32-21 win over Indiana on October 3, 1942. The Buckeyes entered the game with the number one ranking after winning their season opener over Fort Knox in convincing fashion, 59-0.  The crowd of 48,227 at Ohio Stadium saw big play after big play from both teams in this high scoring shootout. In the end, All-American backs Paul Sarringhaus, Gene Fekete, and Les Horvath proved to be too much for their western neighbors.  The Buckeyes went on to finish 9-1 under legendary coach Paul Brown as the Associated Press awarded Ohio State their first ever National Championship. 

This program cover consists of artwork from Milton Caniff. Program is in excellent condition and completely intact.  The back cover shows sign of previously being removed from a scrapbook or was stuck to something as some of the graphics have ripped off.
