Ohio State Opens As Four-Point Favorite in Rose Bowl Matchup Against Washington

Ohio State is favored by four in the Rose Bowl against Washington.

The Buckeyes are set to square off against Washington in the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1st. The Huskies are coming off a Pac12 championship win over Utah and have a record of 12-3 on the season. Ohio State captured yet another Big Ten championship with last night's win over Northwestern. 

According to Vegas Insider, the early line for the game has the Buckeyes favored by four points against the Huskies. Both teams feature plenty of NFL talent and Chris Petersen's squad once again is strong in the secondary and left tackle Trey Adams had been pegged as a first-rounder before undergoing both back and knee surgeries.

The two teams last met in 2007 when Todd Boeckman and the Buckeyes handed Washington a 33-14 defeat in Seattle. They've met 11 times and Ohio State is 8-3 in those contests.

The Rose Bowl will be aired on ESPN and kickoff is set for 5:00 p.m. ET on January 1st.
