C.J. Stroud has rewritten Ohio State's record book.

In the fourth quarter of Ohio State's Rose Bowl showdown with Utah, Stroud eclipsed 500 passing yards on the game to break Ohio State's single-game passing yardage record.

The previous record was set by Dwayne Haskins, who threw for 499 yards in Ohio State's Big Ten Championship game win against Northwestern. Stroud becomes the first player in Buckeye football history ever to throw for more than 500 yards in a single game.

Stroud finished the game 37-for-46 for 573 yards and six touchdowns.

Stroud was not the only one with a record-breaking Rose Bowl performance as Jaxon Smith-Njigba also broke the single-game receiving yards record as well as both the single-season receptions record and yardage record.
