O.J. Simpson attended two colleges: City College of San Francisco (1965-1966) and USC (1967-1968).

O.J. rushed for 3,423 yards and 32 TDs while at USC. In 1968 he was a Consensus All-American and won the Heisman Trophy. The Trojans won the Rose Bowl and National Championship in 1967, but Woody Hayes’ Super Sophomores defeated the Trojans in the 1969 Rose Bowl 27-16 and won the National Championship. The Buckeyes shutdown O.J.

O.J. was the first pick of the 1969 NFL Draft; the Buffalo Bills picked him. He would play for the Bills for nine seasons and for the 49ers for two. He had 11,236 rushing yards over his NFL career and 61 rushing TDs, along with 2,142 receiving yards and 14 receiving TDs. He is in the College Football Hall of Fame and the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Presently, he is in federal prison. This post was prompted by watching the special “Made in America”, which is very well done and worth seeing.
