While it’s not a championship game, the 2017 Cotton Bowl – which sees Ohio State take on the University of Southern California – is likely to be one of the most watched games of this year’s bowl season.
Some Ohio State fans argue they were robbed of a shot at the national title when the University of Alabama was chosen over the Buckeyes this year as one of the four teams to play for the NCAA championship. Alabama did not play for the Southeastern Conference championship.
The decision left Big 10 Conference teams out of the championship playoffs for the first time in four years.
Here’s how to watch the Cotton Bowl on TV and the link to a livestream of the game.
