Ohio State beats Washington 28-23 in 2019 Rose Bowl

Ohio State battled against the Washington Huskies in the 2019 Rose Bowl and emerged victorious, 28-23. The close score, though, might not be exactly indicative of the way the game went.

The Bucks captured their first lead with 9:04 in the first on a touchdown from Dwayne Haskins to Parris Campbell and never relinquished it. Haskins was impressive, if quiet (by his standards) in the game with 251 yards and three touchdowns, but did break the 50 TD mark for the season on the throw to Campbell in the first quarter.


The game was pretty historic for Campbell, as he broke Ohio State’s single-season receptions record (previously held by David Boston) and was the Bucks’ first 1,000 yard receiver since Michael Jenkins in 2002-2003,

The Buckeyes were leading by as much as 28-3 entering the fourth quarter, but Washington strung together three touchdowns in about 12 minutes to make the score a respectable 28-23. In the end, though, the Buckeyes were able to hold off the Huskies and secure a victory to close out the 2018-2019 season.

Also, if you missed it, there was a balloon that made its way onto the field during the game, but was snatched up with some excellent moves by one of the referees:

All in all, it was a successful night for the Buckeyes as they improved to 4-2 in bowl games under Urban Meyer, and this game marked Meyer’s last as Ohio State’s head coach. Starting tomorrow, Ryan Day will assume responsibilities as the head coach while Meyer will move to the Fawcett Center as assistant athletic director to Gene Smith.

Meyer won’t be the only one stepping away from the program, though. Lots of players are graduating or declaring early for the NFL draft. One decision that all Buckeye faithful (and probably a handful of NFL GMs) are awaiting, though, is Haskins’. He hasn’t given an indication yet as to whether or not he’ll be staying at Ohio State for one more year. A Heisman finalist from this season, Haskins could stand to rewrite NFL record books if he returns… or he could declare for the draft and very likely be a top-10 pick in the NFL.
