The career of Ohio State coach Woody Hayes comes to a sudden and shocking end as he punches Charlie Bauman of Clemson after he made a game-sealing interception in the Gator Bowl. The Buckeyes were down 17-15 with two minutes left when Bauman picked off Art Schlichter at the Tigers 24. Bauman was tackled out of bounds, with Hayes hitting him in the throat at the end of the play.
