The 2022 Rose Bowl will be contested between the Utah Utes and Ohio State Buckeyes. Utah is ranked No. 11 in the College Football Playoff rankings, while Ohio State is ranked No. 6.

Utah went 10-3 this season, and after a disappointing early stretch it finished the year by winning six straight games. Ohio State looked to be headed for the College Football Playoff once again until Michigan stunned the Buckeyes with a 42-27 butt-kicking in the regular-season finale.
