Last season: Ohio State 24, Southern California 7
At the scene of their national championship three seasons go, the Buckeyes, who this time missed out of the College Football Playoff, score 21 points off turnovers. Junior cornerback Damon Webb has a fumble recovery on the third play of the game, leading to quarterback J.T. Barrett’s 1-yard run. Webb’s 23-yard interception return off a Sam Darnold pass for a touchdown puts Ohio State up 17-0 early in the second quarter, and the romp is on.
