How they got here
Ohio State (10-2, 8-1 B1G) looked like a lock for their fifth straight Big Ten Championship Game victory, but lost 42-27 to Michigan in The Game, turning the tables intended. for teams this season. While the Wolverines have won the conference trophy and will play for the national championship, Ryan Day’s side will need to regain some motivation after the disappointment. They still have quarterback CJ Stroud for this one, unless he decides to start his NFL Draft prep early.
Utah (10-3, 9-1 Pac-12) dominated Oregon twice in 13 days to win the Pac-12 Championship, and if the season begins in late October, they could make the playoffs as well. The first losses to BYU and the State of San Diego, as well as a headache to the State of Oregon, kept the Utes out of the national picture. But they run the ball as well as any team in America, with sophomore quarterback Cam Rising and running back Tavion Thomas one of the West Coast’s deadliest punches.
