In quite possibly the most dominant performance in college football history; Red Grange scored four touchdowns against a strong Michigan team in the first twelve minutes of the game. He later added another and passed for a sixth, leading the Illini to a 39 - 14 victory. He accounted for over 400 yards of offense; almost 300 in the first quarter alone. The game also marked the dedication of Illinois Stadium.

The performance immediately catapulted Grange into stardom and year later his presence as a member of the Chicago Bears garnered badly needed attention for the fledgling NFL.

The Saturday, October 18th 1924 48 page program is fully intact with a tight binding. There is a tape repair to the top border which covers a three inch tear. The bottom right corner of the first forty pages is also damaged but does not affect any text.

A necessary addition to the collection of a Grange or vintage football program collector from a game that changed the history of the sport!
