It was sixty years since two of college football's tradition-rich powerhouses collided on the football field, but Notre Dame and Ohio State renewed their rivalry in the 1995 and 1996 seasons. The 1930's produced The Game of the Century between these two programs, but it was Ohio State's turn. 

Eddie George's Heisman season in 1995 got a jump start when he ran for 207 yards and two touchdowns against teh Irish. Terry Glenn caught four passes for 128 yards and two scores. The Buckeyes dominated in front of their own fans, 45-26.

The following season in South Bend, Dimitrious Stanley set the tone by taking the kickoff back 85 yards to the Irish 13. It setup the first of two short touchdown runs by Pepe Pearson. Stanley Jackson threw two touchdowns through the air to help the Buckeyes manhandle Notre Dame, 29-16. 

This lot includes programs from each of those games as Ohio State and Notre Dame would not meet again for another decade when the Fiesta Bowl came calling.
