ESPN College GameDay broadcasted live from the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif., on New Year’s Day before the Buckeyes played Utah in the 2022 Rose Bowl.

Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard, David Pollack and Rece Davis sat inside the historic stadium on a cloudy and cold day in Southern California.

The show recapped the New Year's Eve action in the College Football Playoff which saw Georgia roll Big Ten champion Michigan and Alabama gash Cincinnati on the ground.

No. 2 Michigan lost to the No.3 Georgia 34-11 in the Orange Bowl.

"Maybe the Michigan style wasn't as well suited to beat Georgia," Davis said. "These guys who are going play (in the Rose Bowl) today would be well suited ... Ohio State I mean."
