College football history 101: Buckeyes in the Kickoff Classic

Each week, we'll take a look back at some of the most memorable games, moments and storylines in college football history. Here we go:

1995: Ohio State dominated Boston College, 38-6, on Aug. 26 in East Rutherford, N.J., in the Kickoff Classic behind Shawn Springs' 97-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. Eddie George rushed for 99 yards and caught a 14-yard TD that capped a 99-yard drive before halftime.

1986: Alabama hung on for a sloppy 16-10 Kickoff Classic win over the Buckeyes in East Rutherford. OSU had a shot in the final moments as quarterback Jim Karsatos drove his team to the Crimson Tide's 18-yard line, but on the last play of the game his pass to Cris Carter in the end zone fell incomplete. Buckeye linebacker Chris Spielman had 16 tackles.
