Who can forget how the Buckeyes dominated the Oregon Ducks in 2010 to win their first Rose Bowl in over a decade? But do you remember the key player who contributed more than 330 yards of total offense including 72 rushing yards on a torn PCL?
And everyone remembers Eddie George s three-touchdown, 314-yard field day against Illinois in 1995. But what special motivation did the future Heisman winner have against the Illini?
What receiver best known for his Super Bowl acrobatics set a Fiesta Bowl record for the longest touchdown catch?
Whose improbable grab did quarterback Jim Karsatos call the most impressive catch he had ever seen?
These questions and countless others are answered in Game Changers: The Greatest Plays in Ohio State Football History.
Any Buckeyes fan who has sung The Buckeye Battle Cry can tell you not just how many Heisman Trophies running back Archie Griffin won, but what position his little brother Ray played for the Scarlet and Gray. They can tell you how many seasons Woody Hayes paced the sideline at the Shoe just as surely as they can tell you where they were when the Buckeyes won the thrilling national championship in double overtime against the heavily favored Miami Hurricanes.
This is a book for the Bucknut in all of us. It is a collection of the all-time greatest plays in Ohio State football history, featuring everyone from Chic Harley to Archie Griffin to Heisman winner Troy Smith to today s standouts under Coach Jim Tressel. Keith Byars shoeless touchdown run. The controversial interference call in the 2003 Orange Bowl against Miami. The Snow Bowl against Michigan in 1950. The goal-line stand in triple overtime against NC State. They re all here, in exquisite detail, including full-color photographs, game details, and featuring dozens of interviews with some of the Buckeyes leading players and coaches.
Veteran sportswriter David Lee Morgan, Jr., brings to life the most improbable, unbelievable, and unforgettable plays in Buckeyes history. You might agree with the selections or you might disagree, but you won t be able to put down Game Changers: The Greatest Plays in Ohio State Football History.
