This Buckeyes team finished the year on fire with two of the more impressive wins of season and think Ohio State will pick right up where they left off. The PAC 12 is just not very good and think that will show in ugly Rose Bowl loss for Huskies. Final Score Prediction, Ohio State Buckeyes win and cover ATS 41-20.
