5 reasons Ohio State will win National Championship

Barrett finally gets a chance to lead his team into the playoffs.

No. 2 Ohio State (11-1) and No. 3 Clemson (12-1) landed at the Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport late Monday afternoon about an hour apart.

In his first season as a starter, junior Malik Hooker has three of the Buckeyes' seven interception returns for a score.

It might seem like nitpicking, but that's what happens when you are a superstar on one of the top teams in college football. Ahead of Saturday night's Fiesta Bowl, Ohio State is pulling out all the stops to get their defense prepared to try and slow down the versatile quarterback.

"The young man has brought tremendous credit to the community", Smith said of Watson. This is what you work your whole life for. So, it's going to be a lot of fun. "And then he took over that last piece, which was the leadership of running the offensive line prior to the snap as the center and then the vocal leadership of just making sure that things get taken care of the way they need to". "There aren't many people who can run through Ohio State's defense with that kind of speed and nobody can catch them", Warinner said.

If Clemson wins the Fiesta Bowl, they will advance to the College Football Playoff National Championship, which will be played in Tampa on January 9. Keeping the quarterback pipeline filled and flowing is trickier than ever for college football teams - even those in the College Football Playoff. The victor will play either Alabama or Washington in the CollegeFootball Playoff National Championship game January 9 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa.

For now, he's focused on winning a playoff game and a national championship.

"It's just doing what we do", Watson said. Weightlifting sessions. Everything is pushed at a high pace for all players, including freshmen and other inexperienced underclassmen. "It starts in practice". He ranks 42nd in the nation in passer effficiency rating (140.79) and his 7.0 yards per attempt is tied for 72nd in the nation. He was also named the Big Ten's Rimington-Pace Offensive Lineman of the Year.

He plans to host a fourth event when Ohio State becomes the playoff champions. He added that Charlie Strong told him the Tigers were going to be a threat.

"Next year, I don't know". "Those guys transitioning into guys who've never played into guys we're depending on and it starts in the offseason, spring ball and summer workouts and camp trying to help them make that transition". This year is no different with Ohio State producing better than 258 yards per game this season, ninth overall. Even less can match Urban Meyer as a head coach. This was my dream school. Despite the Tigers yardage being down from a season ago, I do not think the entire blame should be placed on the offensive line.

It took three seasons for Fada to show he was worthy of a scholarship, which he earned during the 2016 summer term after previously being a walk-on. Tankersley said earlier this year he covered the slot receiver against Florida State, and he also did so last year in the ACC title game against North Carolina.

"This is a new team, a new season, a new opportunity", Swinney said.

Q. Walking off that field past year, I think that was your only loss as a starter. No team was better than Ohio State at converting runs on third or fourth down, two yards or fewer to go, into first downs or touchdowns (87.3 percent).
