Cotton Bowl: Stream USC vs


But there are other ways to win football games than rolling up big offensive numbers.

Ohio State was up 24-0 when Barrett ran 28 yards for another touchdown after the first of Darnold's two bungles when stripped while being sacked. Pac-12 champion USC is trying to reach 12 wins for the first time since 2008.

"Our defensive line won that game".

Reloading is going to be more challenging than usual this time for Ohio State coach Urban Meyer, who is accustomed to losing much of his talent to the National Football League each year.

"The difference in the game was the early turnovers that created 14 quick points", USC head coach Clay Helton said.

"Our defense was dominating. And, like I said, this one is very personal". To be clear, the Cotton Bowl isn't actually played at the historic Cotton Bowl stadium in Dallas; it used to be but was moved to the Cowboys' AT&T Stadium outside Dallas in 2010. "It kind of hurt me", Barrett said, laughing and tapping his heart.

"It's pretty insane. I mean, since I was little, I looked up to Drew Brees", Barrett said. "I had countless conversations with my coaches about this decision well before the game".

Ward's father, Paul, a middle school principal in Bedford, Ohio, died a year ago of a heart attack at age 46.

There was a debate about College Football Playoff expansion earlier in December, when many people saw it as a toss-up between Ohio State and Alabama for the fourth and final spot.

But as the team trudged to the locker room, recording its second blowout loss in as many seasons on this field, one thing was certain - AT&T Stadium is not a good place to be a Trojan.

"I love OH, but I'm from the great state of Texas".

Darnold was 26 of 45 for 356 yards passing, but his turnovers were costly.

The Trojans' running game is largely reliant on a local kid, former McKinney North standout Ronald Jones II.

The Trojans trailed Ohio State, 24-7, at halftime of the Cotton Bowl on Friday night. What we can learn, though, from the excitement around this game and the potential for a worthwhile matchup is that missing out on a title shot might not be the travesty some want to believe it to be.

Marvell Tell finally flopped onto the ball on the 15-yard line, pounding it into the turf as he shouted in excitement, and the offense lined up in the red zone for the first time. While the matchup looked lopsided on the stat sheet due to their eight sacks, the key was that the Buckeye defensive line was able to make plays in the red zone and keep USC off the board in key situations. "Being able to come to the game was hard for them, but being in Arlington, it's good for them to come watch". Not only did the Buckeyes win, but so did Northwestern to help the Big Ten continue its banner bowl game start. Ward, a native of Macedonia and product of Nordonia High School, is projected to be a first-round pick and one of the first players at his position selected in the 2018 NFL Draft. And it didn't have to wait long.

Webb's 23-yard interception return for a TD put Ohio State up 17-0 less than a minute into the second quarter.

If Darnold's defensive teammates - ranked No. 62 in scoring - can keep Ohio State's offense from running up the score, the Trojans will have a chance.

Tyquan Lewis sacked the third-year junior and jarred the ball loose and Jerome Baker recovered it at the Buckeyes' 41-yard line.

Even more telling? The dynamic duo of J.K. Dobbins and Mike Weber was held to just 57 yards combined.

So why did USC have tight end Daniel Imatorbhebhe try to block Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa?
