In today's college football world, it's very common for players to miss a bowl game trip at the last minute.

Players will have a change of heart when it comes to playing in the game, or something else will come up in the final hours.

We saw some of that today, when Penn State revealed that quarterback Tommy Stevens didn't make the trip for the Nittany Lions' bowl game. Minnesota also announced just before kickoff that three key defenders weren't able to play.

It doesn't look like Ohio State is going to deal with any of that, though.

Buckeyes' head coach Urban Meyer has issued an update ahead of his team's Rose Bowl matchup against Washington.

Everyone that was supposed to make the trip has made it.

"Urban Meyer says that everyone from Ohio State who was supposed to make the trip is here for the Rose Bowl."

Ohio State and Washington are set to kick off at 5 p.m. E.T. on New Year's Day.

The game will be on ESPN.
