Ohio State's football program is having practice in Southern California today in anticipation of next week's Rose Bowl game.

The Buckeyes have a special visitor at today's practice, too.

UCLA head coach Chip Kelly is taking in Ohio State's practice today.

Ohio State's coaching staff has some major connections with Kelly.

The Buckeyes' new head coach, Ryan Day, played for Kelly at New Hampshire. He then coached under him and considers him a coaching mentor.

Urban Meyer is close with Kelly, too.

Ohio State is set to take on Washington in the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day.

Kickoff is set for 5 p.m. E.T. on Jan. 1. The game will be on ESPN.
