    1925 Illinois vs. Pennsylvania Football Program, Red Grange With 363 Yards & 3 Touchdowns. On Halloween night in 1925, it was all tricks and no treats for the Pennsylvania fans attending the Illinois football game and Franklin Field. The undefeated Penn team was looking for a national championship, but Red Grange would prove to be every bit the player Illinois claimed he was. Grange singlehandedly defeated Penn by way of 363 yards from scrimmage, three touchdowns, and taking it to the six inch line to set the plate for the fourth touchdown. As the owner of this program stated on the cover, it was simply "Too much Grange."

    The Franklin Field Illustrated program has some tape repair on the torn binding, and has been folded vertically in the center. It appears possible that the original back cover is missing. A full size photo of Grange is featured on page five, and the rest of the program is full of other photos and biographies. Fair overall condition, but a key program for Grange collectors. Despite losing the game and a possible national championship bid, the Pennsylvania fans were so impressed with Grange that the crowd of 63,000 stood to their feet and removed their hats when he left the game.
