"In Oberlin History" is a series dedicated to notable events in Oberlin College history. It is created in partnership by the Office of Communications and Oberlin College Archives.

As football season gets underway, we'd like to take a moment to bask in the glory of that day on October 8, 1921, when Oberlin upset Ohio State. Oberlin bested the Buckeyes in Columbus at Ohio Field with a final score of 7-6. Through this victory nearly 100 years ago, Oberlin College can proudly claim to be the last in-state school to defeat Ohio State.
