OSU Football Fans Rushing the Field at Away Games

Just watched the BTN special on the 1996 team.  Those lingering frustrations of 13-9 aside, something that brought back memories was seeing the Buckeye fans tear down the goalposts at Indiana's Memorial Stadium after clinching the Rose Bowl.  The idea itself seems so unfathomable - the pocket of away fans that typically travel to a game (Ohio State fans obviously aren't typical) rushing the field and tearing down the home team's goalposts.

I can't imagine there were any other goal post removals, but we know Buckeye fans also rushed the Michigan Stadium field after Bruce's 1987 win in his finale.  At first I assumed the top picture below was from that 1987 win, but the score of '14' under Ohio State suggests this was likely 1981 - making another Buckeye away game where the Scarlet and Gray faithful took to the field in celebration.  The second pic is from 1979 at TTUN, making a third time our fans took to the field Up North.

Any other known away games where Buckeye fans stormed the field?
