Sporting News Makes Prediction For Ohio State-USC

Here's what they see happening.

The Cotton Bowl matchup between Ohio State and USC is one of the most enticing games on the upcoming bowl slate.

Bill Bender of Sporting News unveiled his predictions for every bowl game today.

Here's what he sees for the Buckeyes and the Trojans.

Remember last year's Rose Bowl ? This could be that game. J.T. Barrett and Sam Darnold will put on a show in a matchup of classic rivals, and the winner might get the benefit of the doubt in the College Football Playoff race next year.

SN pick: Ohio State wins 31-27.

Ohio State and USC will kick off at 8:30 p.m. ET on Dec. 29 on ESPN.
