This Pasadena showdown featuring two unbeaten powerhouses has to be ranked among the finest moments in Buckeye gridiron history, right up there with the 1954 national championship and that 2003 Fiesta Bowl stunner against Miami. Taking on the Southern Cal Trojans in O.J. Simpson's last game, Woody's men avenged a series of recent Big Ten Rose Bowl setbacks by spotting them the first 10 points, and then answering with three touchdowns and a pair of field goals. A meaningless USC touchdown during garbage time changed only the point spread, in what was certainly one of Woody Hayes's most satisfying games.
