Rose Bowl Preview

The Utes are 10-3 SU and 6-7 ATS with eight games going over the total and five going under. The Buckeyes are 10-2 SU and 6-5-1 ATS with seven games going over the total and five going under.

The Utes averaged 35.5 points and 428.8 yards per contest. They gave up 20.6 points per game and allowed 317.3 yards per contest. Tavion Thomas led the team with 20 touchdowns and 1,041 rushing yards. Cameron Rising threw for 2,279 yards, while Brant Kuithe had 534 receiving yards. Mika Tafua led the team with 9.5 sacks, while Devin Lloyd led the team with four interceptions.

Ohio State averaged 45.5 points and 551.3 yards per game this season. They gave up 20.9 points and allowed 366.6 yards per contest. TreVeyon Henderson led the team with 15 touchdowns and 1,172 rushing yards. C.J. Stroud threw for 3,862 yards, while Jaxon Smith-Nijgba had 1,259 receiving yards. Haskell Garrett led the team with 5.5 sacks, while Ronnie Hickman had two interceptions.

This will be the first-ever Rose Bowl appearance for Utah, while Ohio State will be playing in the game for the 16th time.

The key player in the game will be Ohio State quarterback C.J. Stroud. He will need a big game if Ohio State is to beat the Utes. The problem for Stroud is that he might be missing some of his big offensive weapons. There is a chance that Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson may decide to opt out of the game to prepare for the NFL Draft.

On the other side, the Utes will need to find a way to keep Stroud in check. Utah has linebacker Devin Lloyd who is going to be a first round pick in the upcoming NFL Draft. The Utes will need to make big plays to keep Ohio State from dominating on offense. Utah had the fifth-most sacks in the country, so they might be able to put some pressure on Stroud.

Rose Bowl Prediction

The question in this game is whether or not Utah can keep pace with Ohio State in terms of scoring. The answer may be yes, as the Utes were a very good offensive team this season. The Utes plus the points looks to be the way to go in what could end up as a very high scoring Rose Bowl.

The 2021 Rose Bowl game was one of two College Football Playoff semifinal matchups and it was all Alabama, as they rolled over Notre Dame. The Crimson Tide jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter and the game was basically over. The Tide led 21-7 at the half and 28-7 after three quarters. The final scored ended up with Alabama winning 31-14.

The game was played at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas with Alabama wide receiver DeVonta Smith winning MVP honors. Patrick Surtain II was named defensive MVP.

Alabama was listed as a 20-point favorite, so despite dominating the game throughout, the Tide did not cover the spread.
