The Utah Utes (10-3) come this matchup after beating Oregon 38-10 for the Pac-12 Championship. The Utes controlled the game from the start and led 23-0 at the halftime. Sophomore running back Tavion Thomas scored two touchdowns in the win, Utah’s first and last on the day.
Thomas led the team’s offense this season with 20 touchdowns while juniors Devin Lloyd and Mike Tafua led the defense. Lloyd, a linebacker came up with eight sacks this year, while Tafua, a defensive end brought down the opposing quarterback nine-and-a-half times.
The Ohio State Buckeyes (10-2) are not where they thought they’d be at this point in the year. Instead of playing in the college football playoffs they are in Pasadena. The Buckeyes ended their season by falling to rival Michigan 42-27. A loss that ended their eight-game win streak against the Wolverines.
One of the biggest tragedies of the Buckeyes missing out on the playoffs is freshman quarterback C.J. Stroud having to wait at least one more year to see what he can do on college football’s biggest stage. Stroud threw for 38 touchdowns this season with just five interceptions as he locked up Big Ten offensive player of the year honors and became a Heisman Trophy finalist.
The Ohio State is a 4-point favorite against Utah. The over/under is 64.
