Rose Bowl – #9 Washington Huskies v #6 Ohio State Buckeyes

Rose Bowl Game presented by Northwestern Mutual

The “Granddaddy of Them All” takes its traditional New Year’s Day position on the schedule, and will feature teams from the Pac-12 and Big Ten just like it usually does. It is part of the “New Year’s 6” and this year features one of the more compelling matchups of the bowl season that won’t help decide the national championship. The Washington Huskies and Ohio State Buckeyes will meet for the 12th time in their histories, with Ohio State leading the series 8-3.

#9 Washington Huskies

The Washington Huskies are coming off of their victory in the Pac-12 Championship over Utah that wasn’t quite enough to get them into the Top 4, though they did snag the Pac-12’s automatic berth in the Rose Bowl. They finished the season 10-3 (7-2 Pac-12), tying for the lead in the Pac-12 North and qualifying for the Pac-12 Championship due to their head-to-head victory over Washington State. Despite the perceived weakness of the Pac-12 nationally, Washington’s FBS opponents have a better combined record than that of Ohio State, going 86-59 (0.555).
