It’s “The Granddaddy of them all”. It’s Urban Meyer’s last game. It’s the last game for the seniors. It could quite possibly be the last game for Dwayne Haskins Jr. It’s the last game for the redshirt sophomores and juniors who decide to forego their remaining eligibility. Do you still need help getting motivated and ready for the Rose Bowl? Well, you shouldn’t, but in case you do, the Ohio State Buckeyes are here to help with their final video trailer of the season.
“I’m honored to represent my home state and this great university the past seven seasons,” Meyer says to start the video. “We’ve worked extremely hard to make the great state of Ohio and Buckeye Nation very proud. It’s always been a dream of mine to compete in the Rose Bowl and it’s going to be an honor to represent the Big Ten conference in that game.”
The Buckeyes were hoping to make the Playoff, but the Rose Bowl sure isn’t a bad consolation prize. Now they have an opportunity to prove that maybe, just maybe, they are in fact one of the four best teams in the country and deserved to be in the Final Four. At the last, they have a chance to give the committee something to think about in the years ahead. Not only that but with it being Meyer’s last game and many players’ last games as well, Ohio State will leave it all on the field, you can be sure of that.
“The eyes of the world are still watching the Buckeyes. And don’t think for one minute you’re going to have a chance to ease up.”
In a video that’s filled with plenty of highlights from throughout the entire season along with some from the past as well, it’ll give you goosebumps. The scarlet and gray have one final game on the national stage this season to prove who they are.
For The People. For The Tradition. For The Excellence. We Smell The Roses.
“A journey becomes a destination, and that destination for us is the Rose Bowl.”
The Rose Bowl was a bucket list item for Meyer. In his final game leading the Buckeyes, he gets to achieve that. Now, Ohio State has to win to end Meyer’s great tenure in Columbus with a bang.
Ohio State and Washington are set to kickoff at 5 p.m. ET in Pasadena, California.
