    Watched on TV. Wasn't Curt Gowdy the TV announcer?

    I was at that game in the student section. What a fun game, what a fun year!

    Best memory is watching the players on the sidelines signaling to Woody Hayes and the Ohio State sidelines that Sam was going to go over the top and they still couldn't stop him.

    Was young then. Watched on TV with my parents at home. That's what USC football needs to be.

    I was eight years old at the time and spent the rest of Christmas break diving over the coffee table into the sofa imitating Sam. It drove my mom nuts but she was about as able to stop me as Ohio St was able to stop Sam.

    Isn't that the game where McKay did the arc-gesture across the field to Woody when they were at the goal line as if to say: "Here's what coming!"?

    I was there. Sam was the Man. And didn’t some kid named AD get in the game, too?

    AD was the back that made buckeyes come up & open up passing to Swann & Young. AD was at Alumni meeting & signed my AD Jersey.

    I would dive over the back of the sofa and land on the coffee table... hmm... must be why I wasn’t bright enough to get my higher education, ahh but they were fun flights :)

    I was there too. It was jaw-dropping how good that team was. They did everything well.

    Unfortunately I was also at the RB the following year. I almost remember it more because it was so unpleasant. Woody returned the favor in a big way on a very gloomy day.
