Colorful and attractive October 31, 1925 issue of Franklin Field Illustrated, a publication devoted to Pennsylvania sports.  By 1925, Red Grange was one of the most famous names in America.  Sportswriter Damon Runyon wrote "This man Red Grange of Illinois is three or four men and a horse rolled into one for football purposes.  He is Jack Dempsey, Babe Ruth, Al Jolson, Paavo Nurmi and Man O' War."  On the day of this game, grange carried the ball 36 times for 363 yards, including two 65-yard touchdown runs against Pennsylvania.

The program is in FAIR to POOR condition, its spine repaired with clear tape and heavily soiled and stained on the cover.  The interior pages, including the many pictorials, are in far better shape.  An outstanding program from the height of Grange's popularity as a college player.
