USC Football rises into Top 10 in final College Football Playoff rankings

Sam Darnold-J.T. Barrett-120517-GETTY-FTR

A relocated Rose Bowl-style game between the Buckeyes and Trojans would have made sense.

No. 9 Penn State will face No. 12 Washington in the Fiesta Bowl.

"Did I expect? I hoped". 16 Washington State (30-27), but the Trojans have recovered to win five straight games and its first Pac-12 title since 2008.

In 2014, the first season of the four-team CFP, Ohio State made it to the national championship game and beat OR 42-20 at AT&T Stadium, the home of the NFL's Dallas Cowboys that has hosted the Cotton Bowl since the 2009 season.

They have a challenging matchup in arguably one of the best games in the New Year's Six lineup against USC on December 29 in the Cotton Bowl.

The game will be the second Cotton Bowl appearance for the Trojans, who defeated Texas Tech, 55-14, in 1995.

"We can't wait for what will be a classic Pac-12/Big Ten bowl matchup", USC coach Clay Helton said. Ohio State won 28-12 over Texas A&M on January 1, 1987. "They're probably devastated. But that's one thing families do, how do you handle devastation, get around those you love and let's go back to work".

The Rose Bowl, the usual destination for Pac-12 and Big Ten champions, is being used as the site of a College Football Playoff Semifinal this season.

While making the actual four team playoff would have been nice, this is still a solid way for both teams to end their season. Michael Pittman Jr. set a Pac-12 championship game record with 146 yards receiving on seven catches. However, they did not receive a boost over No. 7 Auburn, whose skid from the Top 4 after their SEC title game loss to Georgia stopped just ahead of USC.
