OSU and Ohio Wesleyan celebrate the 1890 Game

Representatives of both schools involved in the historic May 3, 1890 game gathered Saturday to celebrate a historic game and dedicate a historical marker on the OWU campus commemorating both schools’ first football game. 

By Bill Smith

    That game, won by the Buckeyes, began two traditions that have brought over a century of excitement to the fans of both schools.
