Thayer Munford was listed as a game-time decision all week, but it's looking like Ohio State's starting left tackle won't be able to go in the Rose Bowl.
Munford did not go through pregame warmups, meaning he will likely not play against Washington. In his place, fourth-year junior Joshua Alabi will make his first collegiate start.

Alabi arrived at Ohio State as a three-star defensive end, but made the switch to the offensive line early in his career. He's been the Buckeyes' backup offensive tackle all season, see action sparingly.
