USC vs. Ohio State Live Stream

USC vs. Ohio State Live Stream

Barrett closed his Buckeyes career on a high note after helping Ohio State to a 24-7 win over USC in the Cotton Bowl on Friday night.

Without All-American cornerback Denzel Ward, who made a decision to sit out the game after declaring for the NFL Draft, Ohio State's secondary was expected to be tested against USC quarterback Sam Darnold, especially without their top playmaker in the defensive backfield.

USC: Darnold, who became the first Trojans quarterback ever with more than 4,000 yards passing in a season, has until January 15 to decide if he will head to the National Football League or return to USC for another season.

J.T. Barrett kicked off the scoring for Ohio State with a 1-yard touchdown run in the first quarterback.

Apple was a member of Ohio State's 2014 national championship team, along with Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott. This Friday's Cotton Bowl is a prime example of why. For both, it was a distinct possibility as they entered Championship Week. Per usual, Ohio State is loaded with NFL talent, while USC on the other hand may have the number one pick in the 2018 NFL Draft under center. Apparently, losses to Iowa and Oklahoma were just too much for the committee to overlook and Alabama got the nod.

That's not a bad trade for those teams, but the sacrifice to get there would mean pushing the rest of bowl season closer to becoming football's version of the NIT.

This could be Sam Darnold's last game as a Trojans as he is projected to go early in the first round of the NFL Draft.

Darnold committed three turnovers, including the pick-6. For the Buckeyes to win, he'll have to be at his best with his arm, but also with his ability to bail the offense out on the ground like he's done so many times before. Vaughns finished with six catches for 119 yards, while Pittman Jr. finished with three catches for 69 yards. But coach Mark Stoops went for two points and the win.

With a shutout likely heading into halftime, K.J. Hill fumbled a punt with just over two minutes left in the first half.

Not only are both teams explosive in the passing game, but they also are powerful in the running game. I don't know that USC would have won if Darnold would have had a clean pocket, but it would have at least had a chance.

Ohio State defensive back Damon Webb returned an interception for a touchdown after recovering a fumble to set up an early score and the fifth-ranked Buckeyes beat No. 8 USC 24-7. The Buckeyes forced another fumble on a Darnold sack to take over with 8:04 remaining and tallied three sacks on USC's final drive of the game.

Never mind the trappings were there for a shootout between Ohio State and USC.

J.K Dobbins, a true freshman, ran for 1364 yards along with 7 scores on only 181 carries.

Despite all the things he and the school have accomplished in his four seasons with the Buckeyes, the biggest trophy he won came in this year's Big Ten title game.

Unlike the USC Trojans, the Buckeyes will have the services of one of the better defenses in the nation. He also threw 12 interceptions. North Carolina State defensive end Bradley Chubb sat out his team's victory over Arizona State in the Sun Bowl. The Trojans offense is a well-run offense that extremely tough to defense unless you make Darnold uncomfortable. The trio did pretty well, reeling in 166 balls for just over 2,200 yards and 15 touchdowns.

Nick Bosa has 1-2 sacks. Electrifying tailback Ronald Jones kept the offense balanced and racked up plenty of yardage along the way.
