Both teams are explosive on both sides of the field, so this should be an intriguing game that see-saws most of the time.
If Oregon wins it will all but cement the Pac-12’s reputation as the best in college football while an Ohio State win will help erase some of the tarnish done to the Big 10’s reputation.
Oregon is being called the favorite bythe odds-makers, but Ohio State has an incredible 8-0 lifetime record against them in the championship game, so it’s a toss-up.
Ohio remains undefeated: 45-40.
