The upcoming Ohio State vs. Utah Rose Bowl game is perhaps one of the games that will have a lot of meaning to the involved players and fans across the nation. First, it is a game that may give insights into what 2022 would look like for both teams. Additionally, many fans would want to know how many players would be sitting out the Bowl game even though no one has opted out of the Bowl yet. Those players will be avoiding injury to enter the NFL draft as high as possible in the Spring.
Ohio State (10-2) will need to ensure that they have their entire team to beat the Pac 12 Champion Utah (10-3). Even though, still, things do not look so promising on their side. For instance, Oregon is one of the teams that beat Buckeyes, yet we have seen the Utes destroy them twice. This makes the intrigues of the game even more exciting. Has Ohio State improved enough since their opening game to beat a team far superior to Oregon?
