Three game programs from the 1944 season including the finale between Ohio State and Michigan. Ohio State defeated sixth ranked Great Lakes Navy, dropped Illinois in Cleveland, 26-2, to take home IlliBuck Trophy, and finished off an undefeated 9-0 season with an 18-14 win over Michigan in Carroll Widdoes' first season as head coach. Following the win, Les Horvath would become Ohio State's first Heisman Trophy winner.  The Buckeyes finished as the second ranked team in the country, behind a loaded Army squad that had the next two years Heisman winners on their roster.

There is writing to all three covers notating the year (1944) of the program.
