The Buckeyes are heading to Pasadena to take on Washington in the Rose Bowl after missing out on the College Football Playoff once again.
Ohio State finished No. 6 in the committee's final rankings, behind No. 5 Georgia. The four teams in the playoff are No. 4 Oklahoma, No. 3 Notre Dame, No. 2 Clemson and No. 1 Alabama.
This is the second-straight season the Buckeyes are on the outside looking in of the College Football Playoff after winning the Big Ten Championship. Last season, Ohio State was No. 5 in the final rankings after winning the title game against Wisconsin the night before.
