Fiesta In Columbus: Buckeyes Headed West

The results are in, and Ohio State is playing in its fourth consecutive BCS bowl game. This year will see the Buckeyes head back west to some familiar territory. Check back with BuckeyeSports.com later for a full report.

This group of Ohio State seniors can count themselves as spoiled for a number of reasons. The Buckeyes have earned five consecutive victories against rival Michigan and have brought home four consecutive Big Ten trophies.

Now, they will be headed back to Arizona for a berth in the Fiesta Bowl in the school's fourth consecutive BCS bowl game.

The Buckeyes will face off against Texas, the No. 3 team in the Associated Press poll, in the Jan. 5 Fiesta Bowl.

Penn State will face USC in the Rose Bowl, giving the Big Ten two teams in the BCS for the sixth time in the last seven seasons.

The game will be the third between Texas and OSU since 2005, when the two teams took part in a home-and-home series that saw each team take home one victory.
