Ohio State didn't make the four-team College Football Playoff, but at rip to Pasadena is a fine consolation prize. The Buckeyes will take on the Washington Huskies on Jan. 1st, and it's the team's first Rose Bowl appearance since topping Oregon to put a bow on the 2009 season.
There's surely a bit of disappointment in missing the playoff, but thus far the team seems to be handling things quite well. Several players took to social media to share some thoughts – and plenty of rose emojis – about the upcoming trip.
Coming off an MVP performance, Dwayne Haskins has already updated his Twitter profile.

Johnnie Dixon had himself a day against Northwestern. The senior hauled in seven passes for 129 yards and a score. He'll look to continue his hot play out west.

One former Buckeye seemed a little displeased with the committee and is hoping the Buckeyes hang a hundred in Pasadena.

Chris Olave has made a name for himself with three touchdowns over the last two games. The true freshman from San Marcos now gets to head back home for a bit.
