Ohio State meets Clemson on Dec. 28 in the PlayStation Fiesta Bowl
COLUMBUS, Ohio – After claiming the program’s 38th Big Ten Conference title on Saturday night, the Ohio State Buckeyes are bound for the College Football Playoffs. The No. 2-ranked Buckeyes will face No. 3-ranked Clemson in the PlayStation Fiesta Bowl on Saturday, Dec. 28 at 8 p.m. ET in Glendale, Ariz.
The Buckeyes own a 24-25 all-time bowl record with wins in each of the last two years in the Goodyear Cotton Bowl and the Rose Bowl Game presented by Northwestern Mutual. This is Ohio State’s third appearance in the last six years in the College Football Playoff, which is the fourth most of any school nationally.
Ohio State earned a 34-21 win over No. 8 Wisconsin on Saturday night after erasing a 21-7 halftime deficit with 27 unanswered points in the second half. Quarterback Justin Fields, who was named the game’s Most Valuable Player, threw for 299 yards and three touchdowns while J.K. Dobbins rushed 33 times for 172 yards and a touchdown. K.J. Hill caught seven passes for 83 yards, including a school record 192nd career reception, and scored two second half touchdowns.
The Buckeyes rank in the top five nationally in total offense (fifth, 531.0 yards/game) and total defense (second, 247.6 yards/game) and have three wins in the last three weeks over teams ranked in the top 10 of the Associated Press Top 25.
Ohio State is no stranger to Arizona or the Fiesta Bowl. This will be the Buckeyes’ ninth Fiesta Bowl appearance and seventh since 2003. Ohio State is 5-3 all-time in the Fiesta Bowl. It will also be the Buckeyes’ fourth bowl game versus Clemson, with the most recent coming in the 2016 College Football Playoff, also in the Fiesta Bowl.
Clemson claimed its fifth consecutive ACC title on Saturday night with a 62-14 win over Virginia. The defending national champion Tigers, 13-0 on the season and on a 28-game winning streak, possess the nation’s No. 4 scoring offense (46.5 points/game) and No. 1 scoring defense (10.6 points/game).
