Bosa spent three seasons in college football, playing for the Ohio State Buckeyes. When he was on the field, he was one of the best defensive players in each game he played.

He only played in three games during the 2018 season. After suffering an injury and expected to be out for a long-time period, Bosa elected to focus on the NFL Draft.

He had 14 tackles, including 6.0 tackles for a loss. He also had 4.0 sacks and one forced fumble, which was returned for a touchdown.

In his Buckeyes career, he had 77 tackles, including 29.0 tackles for a loss, in 29 games. He also had 17.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, including one returned for a touchdown; and two pass deflections.

In 2017, he was a first-team All-Big Ten selection. He also won the Smith-Brown Big Ten Defensive Lineman of the Year.

He also was a part of the Buckeyes team that won the Big Ten Championship in 2017.
