A Homecoming program from when Ohio State hosted Princeton on November 3, 1928 at Ohio Stadium. Prior to the season, legendary head coach Jack Wilce had announced his intentions to retire at the end of the season and focus on medicine. After being dominated 20-0 by Princeton the year before, Wilce's men came out inspired for this rematch. In front of 72,496 fans in Columbus, the Tigers got on the scoreboard first by scoring a touchdown in the third quarter.  After being held down for most of the game, Ohio State's Byron Eby found the endzone with less than three minutes remaining in the game, The extra point was missed and the two teams played to a 6-6 draw.

Program is complete, but the cover is separated from the staples. Front cover and back cover are strongly taped along the binding to keep it intact, The inner pages are in good shape.
