Will Ohio State coach Urban Meyer’s final game be the Cotton Bowl victory over USC?
Meyer is on paid administrative leave at Ohio State following a report Meyer knew about a domestic violence incident involving a former Buckeyes assistant in 2015.
The game seems to have made a lasting impact on USC.
Porter Gustin said at Pac-12 media day the Trojans were not as big, strong or physical on the line of scrimmage as Ohio State.
“It fired us up or gave us that motivation to get bigger and stronger or get more food available for us and all those little things that you need for a team,” Gustin said.
More food? How about a new strength coach?
