Ohio State Soccer will play USC at the Cotton Bowl 2017 on December 29, 2017, at AT & T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, at 8:30 p.m. by ESPN.
Ohio State finished its regular season with a 31-20 victory over Michigan, and then clung to a 27-21 win over Wisconsin at the Big Ten Championship Game on Saturday night. The Buckeyes faced off against Alabama for the last spot on the college football playoff field, and the selection committee was with Crimson Tide.
"We spent a lot of time on [Saturday] night and [Sunday] tomorrow talking about the whole body of work," said playoff committee chairman Kirby Hocutt. "The selection committee simply favored all the work, and as we saw Alabama play week after week, our ranking shows that our committee believes that Alabama is the best football team."
Ohio State is 11-2 after beating Wisconsin. USC has an 11-2 record after beating Stanford in the Pac-12 Championship Game on Friday night.
