And there was very little drama - until the end.

Head coach Urban Meyer of the Ohio State Buckeyes walks off the field alongside his wife Shelley after his team won 45-24 against the Oklahoma Sooners at Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium on September 17, 2016 in Norman, Oklahoma. "Seems like every year in the '70s when I was at that age where everybody is watching it, the parade, the game, and then watching Archie Griffin score touchdowns in the Rose Bowl".

This game could be Haskins' farewell to Ohio State as well, if the sophomore goes pro.

Ohio State finished 13-1, but it was a long and winding road to get there. Ohio State owns a 7-7 all-time record at the Rose Bowl, but has won in each of its last two appearances: a 26-17 victory against OR in 2010 and a 20-17 win over Arizona State in 1997. With inconsistent play on defense there were a few close calls until the flood gates opened against Purdue.

Ohio State turns the page on the Urban Meyer era and Buckeye fans will see what Ryan Day can do with the program.

The DC Comics-based movie collected $51.6 million in USA and Canadian theaters, Comscore estimated Sunday. Reilly, brought in US$7.3 million during the three-day stretch and US$19.8 million since Tuesday.

Meyer cited his health last month in his decision to step down.

The Buckeyes rebounded with four straight wins to close the regular season, including a trouncing of rival MI 62-39 with the Big Ten East on the line.

"I don't believe that's going to happen", Meyer said. With a history of issues because of a cyst in his brain, Meyer was often shown in extreme discomfort on the sideline.

Anyone affiliated with Ohio State - whether it's the retiring coach, the new coach or the players - will tell you this week is about winning the Rose Bowl, about sending Meyer out with a win in a game in which he's dreamt about coaching since his 30-year career began.
