British Pathé, one of the leading producers of newsreels during the 20th century, bestowed an amazing gift on the internet, when it uploaded over 85,000 historical films to YouTube. This classic footage of Ohio State's 1960 NCAA Championship win over Cal is one of those gifts.

The Buckeyes would win the game, 75-55, securing the school's first and only NCAA men's basketball title, with sophomore Jerry Lucas named the tournament's Most Outstanding Player.

If you have some time, the Pathé collection is worth checking out. Among the many offerings is footage of the Wright Brothers' first recorded flight and Neil Armstrong's walk on the moon.
