Ohio St.  Play is on Football tradition on the Buckeye fans roll deep.  I think Ohio St plays more inspired football. There I am the first to chime in.

Clemson's inability to show up in the big games is a concern for me.  They'll definitely have something to prove after getting blown out by WV in last year's bowl, and FSU earlier this year.  A bit of a mismatch that favors Clemson is their passing O vs Ohio St's passing D.  I like to bet on senior QB's in bowl games and this one is a toss up for me, so I'll take the points.  Good luck.

Actually, the WV blowout was two years ago.  Clemson actually won last year against LSU when Les Miles went stupid and didn't run the clock out to put away the game in the 2nd half.  But your point is right, Ohio got lucky and found a team that is as overrated as they are.  This game could go either way so I am thinking about sitting this dance out.  Clemson will score about 30 against the buckeyes' weak defense but they will also give up about that many.  Might come down to a FG at the end, this line looks about right, a FG either way.....34-30 type game.  Someone give me a good case of why either one could dominate the other.

Class?  You used the word class with Ohio and Urban Liar?  They may win the game, too close to be positive about, both are lucky to be playing the other because they may both be the weakest 2 teams in a BCS bowl.  But with all the things that have gone on with this program and this coach, class is the wrong word

Is everyone forgetting how bad this THE State's defense is...how they don't have a receiver that can catch......all Clemson has to do is tackle 2 guys and throw the ball to their big WR!

OState probably lost to Mich St on purpose because Flor St would have beat them by 4 TD's......

Just curious, as I'm to lazy to look it up, but the last time these 2 teams played may have been the late great Woody Hayes's last football game. Although it dates me, I remember that game. Woody actually did nothing at all that was out of the ordinary. College football needs to get another "Bo" & "Woody" rivalry going, today's coaches are so worried about paychecks. Bo and Woody would have coached for nothing, in fact they would have paid for the opportunity, they each weren't concerned what people thought of them and they didn't read the papers. They were truly unique and the loyalty that each showed to their respective schools was also unique, Texas A&M tried to lure away Bo at one time with more money than any coach at the time was being paid and it wasn't about the money. Ohio State wasn't on the schedule.

Does anybody really think that Tosh Boyd won't have his way with this 105th rated pass defense, a defense that Michigan scored 41 against....Clemson's 14th rated pass defense show they have the athletes to come up and make plays........how can 80% of Covers experts pick Ohio...looks like Vegas wants to make up some of their loses.....

Ohio St in a shootout. Look at Clemson's schedule, who did they beat? They won a bunch of games against weak opponents and the two tough opponents they lost to. I was impressed by Sparty beating Stanford, if Ohio St lost to Sparty at Michigan that doesn't look as bad now that Michigan St has proved itself to be a top tier team.
