Danny Ford recalls Clemson’s previous meeting with Ohio State

On the job for 19 days at kickoff, Ford won his first game when Clemson defeated Ohio State, 17-15, in the Gator Bowl. Not until the wee hours next morning did he learn that Ohio State coach Woody Hayes had tried to punch Clemson defensive lineman Charlie Bauman.

Ford would go on to ramrod the greatest decade in Clemson history, including a national title three years later. (The State)
