Marvin Harrison Jr. made the first start of college career in the Rose Bowl Saturday, and he caught his first touchdown in the second quarter.

Then he hauled in two more scores after.

Down 14-0 to Utah after the first quarter, Ohio State got on the board with a 25-yard touchdown throw and catch from C.J. Stroud to the true freshman wideout in the opening minute of the second period, which helped the Buckeyes cut the Ute lead in half after the extra point.

Harrison's third score came on a five-yard pass from Stroud with 10:12 to play in the fourth quarter, and the Buckeyes tied things up 38-all as they continued to rally in the second half.

Prior to the Rose Bowl, Harrison had just five catches for 68 yards all season.

Harrison and sophomore Julian Fleming started at the outside receiver positions for Ohio State Saturday after both Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson opted out of the contest and declared for the 2022 NFL draft this past Monday.
