PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - Jameis Winston won the last Heisman Trophy. It looks as if Marcus Mariota is going to win the award this year.
And on New Year's Day, the two most decorated quarterbacks in college football will go head-to-head in the Granddaddy of Them All.
Defending national champion Florida State (13-0) will face West Coast king Oregon (12-1) in the 101st edition of the Rose Bowl. The tantalizing matchup was determined by the College Football Playoff committee on Sunday.
The schools will meet for the first time in a playoff semifinal that could be a showcase for Winston and Mariota, who both finished up their regular seasons by leading their teams to victories in their conferences' championship games.
