Ohio State vs. Utah score: Live coverage, college football scores, Rose Bowl 2022 updates, highlights – CBSSports.com
No. 11 Utah leads No. 6 Ohio State 38-31 in a Rose Bowl that has been as wild and entertaining as any person — reasonable or otherwise — could hope for. The second quarter went sideways as both teams traded haymakers, which was a departure from the first quarter.
It looked as if we might be on our way to a surprising blowout as Utah jumped out to a 14-0 lead and Ohio State looked like it preferred to be anywhere else. Suddenly, the energy changed.
Ohio State took a risk on fourth-and-1 by throwing deep, and C.J. Stroud connected with Marvin Harrison Jr. for a 25-yard touchdown that set an insane second quarter in motion. The Utes responded with another long touchdown drive to go back up by two scores, and then came three touchdowns in 30 seconds. After Stroud hit Jaxon Smith-Njigba for a 50-yard touchdown pass, Utah’s Britain Covey returned a kickoff 97 yards for a touchdown. A few seconds later, Stroud hit Smith-Njigba again for another long score.
And just in case that wasn’t enough, Utah QB Cam Rising turned a broken play into a 62-yard touchdown run on a dangerous fourth-and-1 decision to put the Utes up 35-21. Then, the craziest thing of all happened: Nobody scored for the final 6 minutes of the first half.
The third quarter belonged to the Buckeyes as they outscored the Utes 10-3, but they still trail by a touchdown as the fourth quarter begins. Keep it locked here throughout the Rose Bowl game as CBS Sports updates you with scores, analysis and highlights from kickoff to the final whistle.
