Don Criqui and Ahmad Rashad have your coverage of the 1989 Hall of Fame Bowl.
The 28-point surge followed a vicious hit by Zack Dumas on Auburn’s Stacy Danley early in the second quarter. The Ohio State safety celebrated with teammates while the Tigers’ running back, the intended receiver on an incomplete pass, remained down on the ground.
”That changed the complexion of the game,” said the Auburn coach, Pat Dye, who urged Danley to get up and run off the field after learning Danley had only had the wind knocked out of him.
”I told him, ‘If there’s any way you can walk off this field – or better yet, run off – you should do it,’ ” Dye said. ”I told him, ‘Don’t you dare let those Ohio State people think they’re tougher than you are.’ ”
