A beautiful Dad's Day program from when Ohio State hosted Chicago on November 10, 1934 at Ohio Stadium. In a battle of first year head coaches, Ohio State's Francis Schmidt got the best of Chicago's Clark Shaughnessy in front of 32,227. Despite Chicago sporting the first ever Heisman Trophy winner on their roster in Jay Berwanger, the Buckeyes shutout the Maroons, 33-0.  Ohio State finished the season 7-1 with their lone blemish coming by a single point to rival Illinois.  The Bucks finished eighth ranked in the country in Schmidt's first season in Columbus.

A portion of the top of the cover has been torn away with some evidence of the tear on the first few pages as well. Minor soiling also evident. Program is completely intact, but the cover is very fragile by the staples.
