Clemson Tigers 31, Ohio State Buckeyes 0
The Tigers beat Ohio State in Saturday’s Fiesta Bowl Playoff semifinal in Arizona
The No. 2 Clemson and the No. 1 Alabama, will square off on Jan. 9 for a shot at winning the National Championship, this will be a rematch for the national title.
Offensive MVP went to none other than their Heisman runner-up quarterback Deshaun Watson #4. Watson carried his team for most of the game, but when they realized that they were in the clear for a win Watson got to sit-out and rest up for Alabama.
Clemson Tigers defensive end, Clelin Ferrell , #99 was named the defensive player of the game (pictured below holding his trophy and sacking Ohio’s QB)!
Saturday brought the worst loss for a Meyer-coached team since the 2009 SEC Championship Game. Surprisingly, Ohio State’s reliable kicker Tyler Durbin missed two 47-yard field goals in Q1. Their running game was held to only 0.7 yards per carry in the first two quarters. Not to mention their quarterback J.T. Barrett was no where near his best in this game. The Buckeyes picked off Clemson’s QB, Deshaun Watson a couple of times, but they couldn’t move the ball enough to do anything with those plays.

“I hope you don’t believe your parents saying they’re proud of you for that trash performance. They have to say that. They are embarrassed. Just like the other 50,000,000 proud Ohio State fans …”
