(AP)– The Rose Bowl is coming to Texas for the first College Football Playoff championship.
Pac-12 champion Oregon and Big Ten champion Ohio State will meet in Arlington, Texas, at the home of the Cowboys on Jan. 12 to decide the national title in the first year of the new postseason system.
The Ducks (13-1) and Buckeyes (13-1) last played in the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, in 2010. Ohio State won that game 26-17. Much more will be at stake this time around.
Fourth-seeded Ohio State upset Alabama 42-35 at the Sugar Bowl on Thursday night.
Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota and Oregon blasted Florida State 59-20 at the Rose Bowl.
Now it’s Buckeyes-Ducks. Ohio State is looking for its first title since 2002. Oregon is seeking its first — period.
