Game 102 | January 9, 1962 | Woody Hayes, Murray Warmath
Minnesotans owed a lot to Ohio State in 1962. The Gophers Rose Bowl victory would not have happened if the Ohio State faculty senate had not voted 28-25 against sending the conference champion Buckeyes to the Rose Bowl. The faculty feared an "overemphasis on football." Hayes, in his 28 years as head coach at Ohio State, won 13 Big Ten championships and five national titles. While Hayes winced, Warmath said Minnesotans owed a vote of thanks to the Ohio State faculty senate.
