Cotton Bowl: Stream USC vs

Cotton Bowl: Stream USC vs

The viewership for the one-sided, Buckeye's victory was up 74% from last season's New Year's Day Cotton Bowl (Jan. 1, 2017) and up 4% from the Cotton Bowl during the inaugural year of the New Year's Six (Jan. 1, 2015).

Coach Urban Meyer could have easily stoked a debate about expanding the four-team College Football Playoff after his Buckeyes were the first team left out this season. Going on fourth down and nearly two yards to go on the Trojans' 42 yard line.

Anytime these two match up, nostalgia and visions of historic games are conjured up. The Buckeyes felt they should have been in the playoff, but got left out.

It was a warm and winning welcome back to Texas for J.T. Barrett and the Ohio State Buckeyes.

The Big Ten and Pac-12 champions would usually play New Year's Day in Pasadena, but the Rose Bowl is a College Football Playoff semifinal game this season.

The offenses then stalled, including two more turnovers by the Trojans' offense. Be careful what you wish for with the changing of the guard occurring after this one.

On the other hand, the Buckeyes' offensive line struggled at times not opening up holes and was shoved into the backfield.

Sam Darnold is the leader of the USC offense.

A 16-yard pass from Barrett to Mike Weber, with a 15-yard face mask penalty added on, plus a 28-yard touchdown run by Barrett made it 24-0. He does it differently than his counterpart wearing the other colors. Their secondary is led by Iman Marshall, Ajene Harris, Chris Hawkins, Marvel Tel III and Jack Jones.

Ward, a highly-touted potential first-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, announced just minutes before kickoff he chose to skip the Cotton Bowl, sighting a "very hard decision". This is a classic battle of quarterbacks. While it would be easy for both teams to show a lack of interest, the good money is on both of these teams coming out with intentions on showing the CFP Committee that it got things wrong. One of two might be official visits. There's no way that sits well with anyone in the heart of this great country of ours, or out on the West Coast.

Prediction: The victor of this game may be the team that can run the ball better and my guess is that would favor the Buckeyes. Of course, and in an expanded playoff, this pair of conference champions would nearly certainly have had that chance.

USC totes the nation's No. 24 offensive attack.

Vegas Odds Ohio State opened as a 6.5-point favorite before settling in a point higher in most books. Something has to give right?

Trailing 24-0, the Trojans finally got on the scoreboard following a muffed punt by K.J. Hill, and USC scored six plays later on a run by Ronald Jones II. "First you have to stop the run and that's something I take pride in as one of the defensive leaders". The Trojans had four turnovers that led to 21 Ohio State points in what could have been third-year sophomore quarterback Sam Darnold's final game. It came within an extra point of tying when Johnson scrambled 9 yards for a touchdown with 37 seconds remaining. You can take that to the bank.

The fifth-ranked Buckeyes play the eighth-ranked USC Trojans at 7:30 p.m. Friday. "It's been a blessing, honestly, to be able to lead the Ohio State Buckeyes". The Trojans offense is a well-run offense that extremely tough to defense unless you make Darnold uncomfortable.

The USC defense must hold up better than it has to date to have a chance Friday night.
