The New Year’s Six kicks off on Friday night, when the USC Trojans and Ohio State Buckeyes square off in the Cotton Bowl at AT&T Stadium, Texas.
Both teams are coming off victories in their respective conference championship games, but they were left on the outside looking in at the College Football Playoff.
The Trojans are led by quarterback Sam Darnold, who is seeing his name swirl around in NFL draft talk as the season comes to an end.
Ohio State has plenty of firepower on offense as well, led by quarterback J.T. Barrett and running backs J.K. Dobbins and Mike Weber.
The Trojans currently lead the all-time series 13-9-1; the most recent game was on September 12, 2009, where the Trojans defeated the Buckeyes by a score of 18-15, scoring with 1:05 remaining in the game to go ahead to stay.
