1997 Rose Bowl themed Ohio State mini helmet. This mini helmet was signed by head coach John Cooper, All-Americans Andy Katzenmoyer and David Boston, Joe Germaine, and Matt Finkes. After second ranked Arizona State's Jake Plummer scrambled for an 11-yard touchdown in the game's final minutes, it looked as if "The Snake" would rally his team to another come-from-behind win. Instead, Ohio State's Joe Germained connected with David Boston with 19 seconds to play to give Ohio State an upset win, 20-17. The Buckeyes finished second ranked in the country and gave John Cooper his only Rose Bowl win at Ohio State.
