Ohio State Buckeyes: Team news

Arguably the best and most complete team in the country so far this season has been first-year head coach Ryan Day's Ohio State Buckeyes squad, surviving some tough Big Ten conference tests down the road to win the Big Ten Championship and go undefeated. Despite being ranked number two in the nation, OSU is seen by many as the best team in the nation and that frustration and feeling of disrespect could fuel the Buckeyes onto bigger things this postseason.


Georgia Bulldogs transfer quarterback Justin Fields has been strong for Ohio State all season but their biggest star has been destructive defensive end Chase Young, who despite a two-game NCAA rules violation suspension is the Buckeyes' sack leader. The Ohio State passing game could be a key for Fields going to go-to wide receiver Chris Olave but OSU's best shot of winning the game comes from their dominant running back JK Dobbins, who has carried his team all season in big games to wins, something Clemson must stop to have a chance.

Clemson Tigers: Team news

The defending national champions Clemson Tigers have enjoyed a dominant season, rarely being challenged at all besides an early-season scare on the road in Chapel Hill against Mack Brown's North Carolina team before winning another ACC Championship title to close the regular season. Sophomore star quarterback Trevor Lawrence struggled with interceptions the first half of the season but has returned to his uber-precise, dominant self as the Tigers have dominated opponents of late. Despite weak opposition mostly in the ACC, head coach Dabo Swinney's team has steadily improved all season and is playing dominant football at the right time as they always seem to do around College Football Playoff time, winning two of the last three national championship titles. Despite coming into the season as the preseason number one team and going undefeated, Clemson fell to number three due to concerns over their competition, a card Dabo Swinney has been playing all season to motivate his team with the disrespect he has perceived.


Three years ago on the road to the first title of the Swinney era, Clemson came into Glendale, Arizona and faced Ohio State in the Fiesta Bowl, dominating and shutting out the Buckeyes in a game that set OSU back several years as a result.


Clemson's offense has been brilliant of late but the defense has been the unsung hero, replacing five NFL Draft defensive lineman and not missing a step behind gameplan mastermind defensive coordinator Brent Venables, who's defense will be crucial to Clemson's hopes today against the Buckeyes. Co-offensive coordinator Jeff Scott is set to become the first Clemson coordinator of this championship run to leave for a head coaching job and he is balancing his duties as USF Bulls head coach with offensive duties for Clemson, something he is managing along with co-offensive coordinator Tony Elliot, the Tigers' play-caller.
