The New Year’s Six rolls on with the 87th edition of the Cotton Bowl Classic. This year’s game is between the No. 10 USC Trojans and No. 16 Tulane Green Wave. This marks the first meeting between the two schools since 1946.
When the Trojans last played, they lost in the Pac-12 Championship to Utah, ending their College Football Playoff aspirations. USC will look to end the season on a high note and build momentum for next season, when they will be one of the top teams in the country. For Tulane, it’s unfamiliar territory as the Green Wave make their first Cotton Bowl appearance in school history and play their first major bowl game since the 1940 Sugar Bowl.

Meet the teams
The USC Trojans enter the Cotton Bowl with an overall record of 11-2. First-year head coach Lincoln Riley has been a slam-dunk hire, bringing a program that has played in one New Year’s Six bowl game up to this point back to national relevance. USC’s chances of winning rest in the hands of Heisman winner Caleb Williams, who is nursing a hamstring injury. Williams should start the game, but if he has to come out at any point, the Trojans might be in trouble.
The Tulane Green Wave head to Arlington as AAC Conference champions with an overall record of 11-2. Tulane received an automatic bid into the New Year’s Six as the highest-ranked Group of Five team in college football. The Green Wave are led by a stout defense that only surrenders an average of fewer than five yards per play, good enough for eighth in the country.
