The Toppled Top

In 1954, five Ohio State optometry students watched Woody Hayes’ Buckeyes beat Michigan, earning a slot in the Rose Bowl. They brought home a special souvenir called the Toppled Top that’s been lost for 50 years. Read about its history, how we found it, and walk the path it took from the Horseshoe to the E.Y.E. fraternity.


You can walk the original path of the Toppled Top using this Google Map.
