After Saturday's overtime loss at Purdue, some people wouldn't have the Ohio State Buckeyes in a New Year's Day bowl, but the folks at Off Tackle Empire think OSU can still be a big draw. during their excellent weekly bowl projections column they have the Buckeyes headed to Dallas on January 2 to face Tulsa in the TicketCity Bowl:
I have Ohio State losing to Penn State and Michigan to end the season at 6-6. They could just as easily finish at 8-4 and go to the Insight Bowl.
Look for the Tulsa-Houston loser to go here.
The TicketCity bowl is one of five bowl games on January 2nd that has a Big Ten tie-in, but it is the last pick of those five games. The Rose, Capital One, Outback, and Gator all have a Big Ten tie-in and pick ahead of the Ticket City, while the Meineke Car Care and Insight Bowls also pick ahead of the TicketCity Bowl, but are played earlier.
