Program from Red Grange's last game when Ohio State hosted Illinoisat Ohio Stadium on November 21, 1925. 84,295 patrons witnessed The Galloping Ghost's last game for the Illini, the highest attendance ever recorded for a sporting event to date.  Illinois defeated Ohio State 14-9, while Grange recorded two interceptions in the final minutes of play to secure the visitors the win.

This program is almost 100 years old with evidence in its condition. It's complete, but the cover is separated, there is a lot of soiling, and there are pages separated throughout.  Pencil scoring by the original patron that attended the game that day.
