Ohio State beats Utah 48-45 in the 2022 Rose Bowl

The Ohio State football team faces Pac-12 champion Utah in the Rose Bowl at 5 p.m. today in Pasadena, California.

It’s the first Rose Bowl game ever for the Utes while Ohio State makes its third appearance since 2010. The Buckeyes have won three straight Rose Bowl games dating back to 1997 and coach Ryan Day looks for his first non-College Football Playoff bowl game win since taking over the Buckeyes.

The last time Ohio State played a game without Day as its head coach? That was the last time Ohio State was in the Rose Bowl in 2019. It was Urban Meyer’s final game at Ohio State.

Social media reacts to No. 1 2022 recruit Travis Hunter’s shocking commitment to Jackson State football, Deion Sanders

Travis Hunter is the No. 1 recruit in the United States in the 2022 class, per the 247Sports Composite.

And he has committed to Jackson State football.

Hunter decommitted from Florida State and committed to Jackson State on Wednesday, the first day of the early signing period. It is the most shocking news story of early National Signing Day and in recent college football recruiting history.

It is an unprecedented move for a blue-chip recruit, much less the top recruit in the country, to make a move to an FCS school out of high school. That Hunter signed with Jackson State, an HBCU, makes it that much more meaningful.
