We’re now just two short days away from watching Ohio State and Utah in the “Granddaddy of them all,” the Rose Bowl on New Year’s day.

The game would seem like two teams going in opposite directions. Ohio State is no doubt disappointed in losing to Michigan and not making the College Football Playoff, while the Utes are smitten and motivated by representing the Pac-12 and playing in their first-ever Rose Bowl.

Still, there is a game to be played, and a proud program like Ohio State has to lay it all on the line or risk losing three games in a college football season for the first time since 2011 when the team finished 6-7 with a loss to the Florida Gators in the Gator Bowl.

You’re going to see a ton of predictions and previews for this thing as we inch ever so closer, but we like to check in with two of our favorite people that never seem to agree on anything, OSU hater Mark May and Lou Holtz. They have a fun little video podcasty thing called “The Crowd’s Line” going, and both provided their predictions for the game at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains. Both agreed on who will win this contest.

Check out which team each picked and their reason for doing so.
