Ohio State’s first football National Championship. Under second year head coach Paul Brown and behind the play of All-Americans Charles Csuri, Gene Fekete, Lindell Houston, Paul Sarringhaus, and Bob Shaw, OSU upset the Michigan 21-7 on their way to the 1942 Western Conference (Big 10) championship. They would go on to capture their first National Championship, despite not appearing in a bowl game.
Soon after the Buckeyes were named National Champions, many of their stars signed up for duty in World War II. Amongst this group was All-American end Bob Shaw. Along with several of his OSU teammates, he served with the 104th Infantry Division during the war, earning a Bronze Star as the Timberwolf Division fought its way through Europe, eventually liberating the Mittelbau-Dora concentration camp in Nordhausen, Germany.
In 2002, Ohio State would once again be crowned National Champions. Coach Jim Tressel, who had become familiar with the story of the 1942 team, wanted to do something to honor the ’42 team. With that in mind, Tressel awarded each of the remaining members of the team.
