To celebrate Ohio Stadium's 100th Anniversary, we got in the time machine to went back to the first-ever game in the Shoe. Twitter didn't exist in 1922, but if it did this is how Ohio State vs. Ohio Wesleyan would have played out from the press box.

A soggy and slow game sees your Buckeyes up 5-0 over their neighbors to the north. One safety and one goal from field for Ohio State.— Columbus Sports Commission (@ColumbusSports) September 30, 2022
We’ll be back with more reports of the action after halftime. Stop by the soda fountain in the mean time. #TheShoe100 pic.twitter.com/U3HVeky9Wl
