PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
That is definitely not Ohio Stadium. Looks to be at Northwestern (Dyche Stadium, now Ryan Field)
Still very cool footage
October 24, 1931 Northwestern @ Ohio Stadium • Columbus, Ohio L 0-10 Att: 41,455
Is the film incorrectly dated, perhaps?
Not sure about the date. Ohio Stadium was two tiered stadium from the start. The beginning footage shows a single tier seating system, which resembles very closely Ryan Field's east side (Wikipedia tells me Ryan Field was completed in 1926)
I tend to think it's dated correctly but they just made an mistake in location (plus appears to be mixture of different games)
Weird. Northwestern University uploaded the video. Figure they'd be able to spot their own field.
I thought we had tackling problems now....that play at 1:05ish is pathetic. I would have definitly been punching my couch and throwing stuff.

I thought the same thing. I mean come on, just stick your facemask in between his numbers! ...Oh wait
The video shows the scoreboard at the end stating Illinois v Northwestern.

Looks like there are portions of several games on that video. The stuff around the 8 min mark and the scoreboard at 8:35 is at the Shoe. Right after that the NU guy makes a drop kick field goal to go up 10-0. Kinda neat.
This is the correct video. C'mon nerds.
Crazy to see how short the endzones were back then.

No outrage over the lack of sleeve stripes or grey helmets?
Ohio State G Joe Galius in 1931, wearing what was referred to as Ohio State's "winged helmet"?!!!?
