The football gods give and the foot ball gods take away. That was as apparent as ever on Sunday in Week 5 as Alex Smith made his triumphant return to action after nearly two years away from the sport as a result of a gruesome leg injury. On the other side of that coin, only hours later, Dak Prescott suffered a gruesome ankle injury of his own and is now out for the season.

Terez Paylor & Charles Robinson recap all of the Week 5 games up until Sunday night including the Dallas Cowboys’ pyrrhic victory against the New York Giants, the Las Vegas Raiders stunning the Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs, Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks adding another exhibit to his MVP case against the Minnesota Vikings and the Atlanta Falcons cleaning house after suffering yet another loss, this time to the surprisingly frisky Carolina Panthers.

Reliving Ohio State vs. Michigan 1968, The Game that defined Woody Hayes’ career: Buckeye Talk Podcast

Posted on

COLUMBUS, Ohio — In 1968, Woody Hayes had arguably his most significant moment as the head coach of the Ohio State football team.

The Buckeyes went on to win a national championship by capping off a 10-0 season win a win over USC in the Rose Bowl, but the highlight of the year was the win over Michigan.

Led by the Class of 1970 — better known as the “Super Sophomores” — the Buckeyes dominated Michigan on the way to a 50-14 win, securing their first Big Ten championship since 1961. That victory seemed like a sign of things to come from a 12-man group headlined by Rex Kern, Jack Tatum and Jim Stillwagon.

Ed Chay described the Buckeyes’ performance that afternoon as “magnificent and superb” in his game story in The Plain Dealer. He called it “Ohio State’s finest hour” as it scored 36 consecutive points in the final three quarters.

“A record throng of 85,370 delirious fans almost rocked Ohio Stadium’s historic 47-year-old oval off its foundations with thunderous approval as the Buckeyes completely destroyed their most bitter rivals in the game that meant so much,” Chay wrote.

Ohio State vs. Michigan on November 23, 1968, is the fifth episode of our Buckeye ReTalkables series. Previously covered were:

• Ohio State vs. Oregon, 2010 Rose Bowl
