Ohio State vs. Clemson: Fiesta Bowl prediction, preview
For the second consecutive season, two undefeated teams meet in a CFP semifinal.
But this one feels different.
Last year, Clemson crushed Notre Dame in the ?2 vs. ?3 game. But this year, defending national champion Clemson is the ?3 seed and plays a ?2 Ohio State that was ?1 going into the final week of the regular season.
This marks the second time the Buckeyes and the Tigers are meeting in the CFP. In the 2016 season, Clemson blanked OSU 31?0 on its way to winning the national title.
Expect a much closer game this time. Both Ohio State and Clemson have won big week after week. OSU?s closest win was by 11 points against top-10 Penn State; after escaping North Carolina in the last weekend in September, Clemson has won its last eight games by 42.1 points per game.
Here?s how dominant Clemson and Ohio State have been. They are Nos. 1 and 2 in passing defense, with the Tigers ranking first in the nation in points allowed per game (10.6), yards allowed (244.7) and passing yards allowed (138.5). Ohio State? Oh, just two Heisman finalists in QB Justin Fields and DE Chase Young. Young?s 16.5 sacks lead the nation. And Ohio State?s 48.7 points per game leads the country.
If there?s one area that could be trouble for Ohio State, it?s protecting Fields. The Buckeyes have surrendered 31 sacks in 13 games ? 95th in the country at 2.38 per game. That hasn?t cost OSU yet, however, as Fields has 40 passing touchdowns with only one interception. He also has star RB J.K. Dobbins.
