Game program from the November 15, 1941, game played at Ohio Stadium against old rival Illinois. This marked Homecoming in Columbus, but also the 25th anniversary from perhaps the greatest win in school history. Chic Harley led Ohio State to an improbable 7-6 win late in 1916 by scoring a miraculous touchdown and then kicking the game-winning touchdown through muddy conditions.

In Paul Brown's first season at the helm, Ohio State defeated Illinois, 12-7, in front of 41,544 fans. They went on to finish 6-1-1, and a second place finish in the Big Ten.  It would set the stage for Ohio State's first National Championship in 1942.

This program is fully intact with strong staples, there is some tape on the inside cover.  The cover also shows some light bends in a couple of places, but has been flat for some time.
