Tonight is simple, win or go home. For the 5th straight year Clemson is in the College Football Playoffs and they get a familiar foe in the Ohio State Buckeyes. Last time Clemson played Ohio State it was a fun 31-0 beatdown. Don’t expect that this year.
Ohio State will easily be the best team on Clemson’s schedule to date. The Buckeyes easily have enough talent to beat Clemson, especially if the Tigers come out even a little bit flat. On offense the Tigers will have to contend with Fields in the passing game, but also be wary if he decides to make plays with his feat. But where Ohio State could really hit Clemson is in the running game with Dobbins. If the Tigers can’t stop Dobbins it won’t end well.
On defense the big name is Chase Young, but Ohio State’s LBs are likely to be the most important position. If they are able to sit and stop Etienne it could put a lot of pressure on the passing game for Clemson.
This should be an exciting one all night. Kickoff for this one is at 8pm EST on ESPN. As always join us below in the comments to discuss this one
