    Utes squander a terrific pick in the endzone, they go 3 and out and then their punter drops the snap and the Buckeyes are set up in the red zone. Easy score and it's now 35-27.

    Rose Bowl is now Utes 38-31 late 3rd qtr. I just get the feeling that the Buckeyes are wearing the Utes down and will win the 4th qtr and the game.

    Cameron Rising is likely done for the game after that sack. The kid who will finish the game has no experience and was a walk-on. Don't see how the Buckeyes can lose now

    Stroud has all day to throw now.

    Ohio State WR's have just been unstoppable tonight. #11 is an All-American next year and a 1st round draft choice, #18 is young and very talented and already looks to me like he'll be one of the best receivers in the country next season. Flemming isn't bad either! Of course CJ Stroud has been outstanding tonight throwing the ball, he's had all the time, but still you have to make the throws.

    Utes’ walk-on freshman QB leads the Utes to a tying TD. Great game.

    OK I guess Utah didn't read my post that they had no chance without Cam Rising. The Walk-0n leads the Utes on a good drive and the game is tied at 45 with 1:54 remaining

    The way Stroud and his WR's are in synch right now I predict that they will drive for the winning TD or FG.

    Great game to watch though, very exciting play by both teams.

    Like that comparison of talent between UGA and UM last night, I'll bet that Ohio State has an even bigger talent (based on recruiting rankings) advantage over the Utes than UGA had over Michigan or Alabama over Cincinnati

    Nice victory for the Buckeyes against a gritty Utah team. Stroud and the Buckeyes 5* young wideouts could not be contained by the Utes.

    Don and Stu will finally sleep well tonight! A really great game and a testament to the depth of the roster at Ohio State and the coaching staff getting the team ready after those guys opted out for the NFL.

    Stu is a double winner with the Boilermakers and the Buckeyes and his sons are leading the pick'em!!

    Bobda, I felt like we gave up way too many points in the first half to make a comeback, but we did. Always hate to lose the last game of the season. especially after losing to that team up North.;)

    I just read that MSU who finished 11-2 with a bowl win, has had 13 players enter the portal since that win. They had added somewhere around 20 players from the portal this year. Welcome to the new college football, waiver wire as Lane Kiffin commented.

    Don, Stu ..is it true that Ohio State was missing 24 players for the Rose Bowl?

    I can not vouch for those figures, but with the five opt outs and some players did not travel to the Rose Bowl. it might be possible?

    That was a win, Don, that will provide a significant confidence boost to the team for next year. Beating the PAC 12 champ at what was essentially a road game for OSU is a solid way to end the season.

    Really upset with Iowa...had the game won. Get 1/2 yard from mid field and game is over...instead they punt and Ky gets the ball with 3 1/2 minutes left and scores the winning TD.

    Stroud set Ohio State records in the Rose Bowl yesterday along with Jaxon Smith-Njigba. Stroud over 500 yds passing, and Nigba with over 300 yards receiving in a single game. Stroud also set three records for Ohio State single records for total yards in a season. He also surpassed Dwane Haskins and Justin Fields in those catigories.

    Looks like ND is a lock to start next season 0-1. We couldn’t handle Oklahoma State’s receivers. No way will we be able to handle Ohio State’s. Plus, with no running game, we’re likely to be shut out. It could be a record loss, or, if you’re an Ohio State fan, a record win. :(
