Matchup between Clemson WRs and Ohio State DBs could decide Fiesta Bowl

The Buckeyes are 11-1 and Clemson is 12-1 heading into the Fiesta Bowl, which will be played at 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 31, in Glendale, Arizona, and represents a playoff semifinal.

When Clemson is on offense, the key to the game will be quarterback Deshaun Watson's ability to prevent costly mistakes. The Tigers defeated the Oklahoma Sooners previous year in the Orange Bowl.

Most of the dominant players who helped Ohio State go 26-2 with a national championship the last two seasons have moved on to the NFL. His postseason winning percentage (.833) ranks second behind Utah's Kyle Whittingham (10-1), who succeeded him at Utah, but let's face it, Meyer has played in much bigger games than Whittingham. Wisconsin's Corey Clement (164 yards) and Michigan State's LJ Scott (160 yards) were the only running backs to hit up the Buckeyes for more than 100 rushing yards this season. "When I was younger I used to love to go out and watch other programs and take nuggets from everybody".

Just two years ago, we were talking about how Alabama was likely to win the first ever College Football Playoff, taking on No. 4 seeded Ohio State in the first round.

The good times for OSU's offense and its offensive line include 776 yards of offense and 77 points against Bowling Green, 669 yards and 58 points against Rutgers, back-to-back 62-point games against Nebraska and Maryland and scoring 45 at Oklahoma.

Ohio State is no different.

"It takes a few years off your life expectancy", Ohio State offensive coordinator Ed Warriner joked said of the tight squeezes.

Louisville would lose a close one to Clemson, 42-36, but Jackson was able to throw for 295 yards and a touchdown, as well as rush for 162 yards and another two scores in the defeat.

Ohio State's defense starts with turnovers, because it has made a habit of starting with turnovers.

The Buckeyes offensive line has struggled in pass protection at times this year, allowing 25 sacks on the season.

Ohio State spent time with the Free Arts for Abused Children organization Wednesday as well.

Ohio State's secondary has been one of the nation's best when it comes to turnovers, which may spell trouble for Clemson.

"I actually, I feel like he is a great quarterback with his legs", Johnson said. In total he accounted for more than 1,500 yards from scrimmage and 15 touchdowns, he's just as dynamic as Percy Harvin was for Meyer at Florida while playing the same position. Special teams regular Craig Fada (Watterson) and defensive players DaVon Hamilton (Pickerington Central) and Malik Harrison (Walnut Ridge) also are on that list.

Meyer said in the offseason, he wants to see Ohio State expand its passing game.

"I knew I was a good football player but I knew there was a lot of room for improvement and I could come back here and get better at those things. But nobody gives you that, you've got to go and earn it and you've got to beat the best and they (Ohio State) certainly represent that".

But Alabama also played just one team (USC) ranked in the committee's final Top 10. For running plays, Ohio State is employing defensive back Eric Glover-Williams. Samuel is so good, Clemson linebacker Ben Boulware - a member of this year's all-ACC first team - doesn't want anything to do with him.

"They told us yesterday that we've had over 750 Clemson snaps or something like that from the scout team".
