Dwayne Haskins has not played his final game in an Ohio State uniform.

One day after leading the Buckeyes to a 45-24 win against Northwestern to claim the Big Ten championship, Haskins confirmed he will play in the Rose Bowl against Washington on Jan. 1.

"I'm playing in the game," Haskins said Sunday afternoon.

After the Big Ten title game Saturday night, Haskins told reporters he will make his decision about whether to declare for the NFL draft after the bowl game. He has risen up draft rankings in recent weeks, fueling speculation that he might skip the Rose Bowl, but Haskins quashed all speculation.

In the Big Ten title game, Haskins went 34-for-41 for 499 yards, including five touchdowns and one interception. This season, he has completed 348-of-496 passes for 4,580 yards, along with 47 touchdowns and eight interceptions.

Dre'Mont Jones, when asked the same question, responded "We'll see."

The redshirt junior defensive tackle has 8.5 sacks and 36 tackles this season this season. Jones is a potential first-round draft pick, along with Haskins.
