As the higher-ranked team in the final College Football Playoff rankings of the season, Ohio State will wear its standard home uniform in the Rose Bowl against Utah.
The Buckeyes are 8-7 in 15 appearances in “The Granddaddy of Them All,” including 3-3 in games while wearing scarlet jerseys. That includes the 1921 game against Cal – which was color-vs-color – and the 2019 victory over Washington.
Additionally, Ohio State’s sideline will be on the west side of the Rose Bowl – the side of the stadium that features the press box – while Utah will be on the east sideline, as is standard when teams from the Big Ten and Pac-12 meet in Pasadena.
Kickoff of the 108th Rose Bowl Game is set for 5 p.m. on Jan. 1. It will be televised by ESPN.
