Ohio State Wins Battle for Bowl Week Competition Over Georgia, 4-1

Ohio State has knocked off No. 1 Georgia.

Well … in the Battle for Bowl Week contest, at least. The Buckeyes won four of five team events against the Bulldogs throughout the week to earn the Bowl Week Championship belt, winning the Drop It Like It’s Hot, basketball, bowling and Andretti Karting Indoor events.

But hey, the team that wins the Battle for Bowl Week contest has been victorious in seven of the last 11 Peach Bowls, so that’s something, right?

The Buckeyes lost their only competition event on Monday when four offensive players, four defensive players and two assistant coaches from both teams faced off in “Football Feud,” a properly developed game of the popular game show Family Feud. OSU bounced back later that night by winning the Drop It Like It’s Hot event, where teams were shown multiple-choice questions and had 15 seconds to discuss. They were assigned a fixed amount of points they could place on each answer. Incorrect answers fell off the screen one by one along with any points they had bet on that answer. OSU won the 1500-1000.

Ohio State and Georgia players went head-to-head in a pair of game-style contests tonight to kick off Battle for Bowl Week. After Georgia won the first contest (Family Feud), Ohio State won the second contest (inconsequential) to take home the Battle for Bowl Week belt for now. pic.twitter.com/EBQ00PeQdC

Remember when CJ Stroud said the Ohio State football team could beat the basketball team in a basketball game at Big Ten Media Days in July? Well, the Ohio State basketball players certainly didn’t agree with his assessment. But can they beat the Georgia football team in a basketball game? They already did a hot shot basketball challenge on Wednesday night. The designated players had a 45-second window to make as many free throws as possible, and the Buckeyes won the contest 140-123. Surprisingly, Stroud was one of the Buckeyes’ representatives, along with former high school basketball players Cade Stover and JT Tuimoloau.

OSU capped off the competition by winning the Andretti Bowling competition that same night, with each team selecting two players to compete. The Buckeyes won the event 416-378. Ohio State ended the night in style by winning the final event, Andretti Indoor Karting. The average lap time for each team was totaled and the team with the fastest average time was declared the winner. OSU edged out Georgia by three-tenths of a second for the fastest average lap time.

The Buckeyes will now look to defeat Georgia in the contest that really matters when they take on the Bulldogs on the football field at 8:00 pm Saturday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
