Welcome to the Season Finale of Friday Night Fights.

This series has been your opportunity to prove how clairvoyant you are regarding Ohio State's upcoming football fortunes. It also gauged how good or bad your #takes were, if you choose to defend them in the comments.

The Rose Bowl Game completes the Buckeyes' season. Since Woody Hayes left coaching, Ohio State has been good for about one Pasadena vacation per decade - so while it might not be the pinnacle of Big Ten football anymore, it's nonetheless special and worthy of being treasured. 

Let's look back at the B1G Championship Game fights:

sorry nerds
The Buckeyes' 21-point stroll was only that close on account of Ohio State doing 2018 Ohio State things to keep it that way.
michigan still sucks
Malik Harrison led everyone, but Johnnie Dixon had as many tackles as Tuf Borland (2) and no other LBs registered a statistic.
michigan and northwestern both suck
Thorson threw for 27 more yards, two fewer TDs and the same number of interceptions.
not great, bob
Forty-one passes; 46 rushes. Would have been cool to average more than 2.3 per carry.
About what was expected. In a season where Ohio State caught zero breaks and self-destructed, it caught zero breaks here.

The #take of the fight:

good take
A steady, correct and almost inevitable #take on things.

Onto the final Fights of 2018:
