OHIO STATE MAKES ITSELF AT HOME IN AT&T STADIUM PRACTICE

Monday, December 25th, 2017

Ohio State (11-2, 8-1 Big Ten), No. 5 in the College Football Playoff rankings, practiced at AT&T Stadium for the first time since arriving in preparation to face the No. 8 USC Trojans (11-2, 8-1 Pac-12) in the 82nd Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic. The stadium was unavailable Saturday because of Texas high school championship games and Sunday because of the Dallas Cowboys game, so they practiced at a local high school.

Ohio State (11-2, 8-1 Big Ten) is fifth in the College Football Playoff rankings and USC (11-2, 8-1 Pac-12) is eighth.

Head Coach Urban Meyer put Ohio State through a spirited two-hour workout in full pads at Euless Trinity High School.

Ara Parseghian…College Football Loses a Coaching Giant and Cotton Bowl Hall of Famer

Thursday, August 3rd, 2017

When a discussion ensues about the greatest games in Cotton Bowl history, the debate often leads to Texas vs. Notre Dame in 1970 and 1971. Both games live in college football and Classic lore. National Championships were on the line and legends were born, but at the epicenter of these extraordinary games were two absolute giants… Darrell Royal and Ara Parseghian.

Both brought out the best in their players, but beyond that, they came to personify the very best in Longhorn or Fighting Irish football.
