Greatest Moments in Ohio State Football History free pdf Winning the national championship in dramatic fashion with a 31-"24 upset of top-ranked Miami in what many called the greatest college football game of all time undoubtedly ranks as one of the most memorable moments in OSU football history. And it, along with the Buckeyes' national championships of 1942, 1954, 1957, 1961, and 1968, are captured in this comprehensive collection of Ohio State's glorious triumphs on the gridiron. Beginning with a 23-"3 win over Northwestern that capped a 7-"0 season in 1916, the book chronicles dozens of the biggest games in Buckeyes history as well as highlighting some of the brightest stars to don the scarlet and gray. Included are OSU's Heisman Trophy winners Les Horvath (1944), Vic Janowicz (1950), Hopalong Cassady (1955), Archie Griffin (1974 and 1975), and Eddie George (1995), as well as legendary linemen, such as Lou Groza, Jim Houston, Jim Parker, Jim Stillwagon, John Hicks, Jim Lachey, and Orlando Pace. Selected games include high-profile nonconference showdowns and the biggest of the Big Ten matchups, as well as Rose Bowls, Gator Bowls, and Cotton Bowls, culminating with the incredible 2003 Fiesta bowl. Whoever pronounced that OSU's victory that January night was the program's brightest moment to date might be surprised to find so many more special highlights brought to life in this book, a must for every Buckeyes fan.
