With Ohio State losing by a mere two points and driving downfield field in the final two minutes of the game for a go-ahead score, Clemson's Charlie Bauman intercepted an Art Schlicter pass to seal the Tiger win.
But the fun was only beginning. After Bauman was driven out of bounds, who should come up to greet him but Ohio State coaching legend Woody Hayes! Only instead of a handshake, Woody greeted Bauman with a pair of flying fists! Woody didn't go much for losing, and this was his fourth Bowl loss in five years. (Two exclamation points in a row is enough.) It was one of the Tigers' finest--and funniest--hours.
