No. 9 Penn State will face No. 12 Washington in the Fiesta Bowl.

This is the first time the Cotton Bowl Classic involved two conference champions since 1987 when Ohio State defeated Texas A&M.

Many pundits had expected the two teams to play each other if both missed the playoff.

Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett threw two touchdown passes and two interceptions in the win against the Badgers.

As for the Trojans, it's been a climb back to the top, but beating Stanford twice and having the second win be for the PAC-12 conference is something the committee didn't want to ignore.

"We'll be fine. It's going to sting for a while and then get around those you love and care about and move on".

The Spanish supreme court has withdrawn a European arrest warrant for the ousted president of Catalonia, Carles Puigdemont . The three parties opposed to independence would get 44.3% of the votes and gain 59 to 60 seats, the poll suggested.


USC finished the year 11-2 with their latest win over the Cardinal, and are all set for December 29th when they'll go toe-to-toe with fifth-ranked Ohio State.

While Meyer knows USC coach Clay Helton "a little bit" and realizes that the Buckeyes and Trojans are both traditional programs, the Ohio State coach hasn't studied his Cotton Bowl opponent yet. The game matched Big 12 and SEC teams before that.

Auburn's coaching situation appears to be more settled now after Gus Malzahn reportedly reached agreement on a new contract, spurning overtures from Arkansas to fill its vacancy.

The Buckeyes, who defeated Wisconsin to win the Big Ten championship on Saturday, have fond memories of JerryWorld, having defeated OR to win the national title on January 12, 2015. As in the CFP rankings, Auburn stayed ahead of the Trojans at No. 7.

The Nittany Lions and Huskies both finished 10-2 and will meet at University of Phoenix Stadium on December 30.
