Efficiency on Third Down Key to Ohio State Winning Fiesta Bowl

The game will be played on Saturday night, but it will have a Sunday afternoon twist.

Bowl week started with red carpet arrivals for the teams, greeted by some fans and a couple dozen bowl representatives and volunteers in bright yellow jackets as they deplaned like visiting heads of state.

Fall camp opened at Clemson with a video, highlights of a brilliant 2015 season that ended with tough-to-take images of Alabama celebrating a national championship at the Tigers' expense.

The incident cost Hayes his job at Ohio State.

A freshman defensive lineman who plays on passing downs almost exclusively does not seem like the guy who would make a difference. It's a ball-hawking secondary, and it's one that Watson has to respect.

Ohio State is in search of its fifth straight season with at least 12 wins.

Harrison is a true freshman who has 13 tackles in 11 games while Hamilton is a redshirt freshman who has nine tackles in 12 games. They should be well rested for this one. Watson seemed a hair off all season.

Watson is focused on leading his team back to the National Championship Game, and he is playing like a man anxious for a chance at redemption. If the Tigers can defeat the Buckeyes in the Fiesta Bowl, it will set up a rematch of last year's CFP National Championship game, which was a 45-40 thriller.

"He is the total package", Swinney said. "We have a lot of guys who are trying to simulate what they do on defense, too. He is just wired the right way".

Numerous holes had to be filled, but coach Urban Meyer didn't just fill them. Raekwon McMillan is a star at linebacker to complement a deep defensive line featuring Nick Bosa and Sam Hubbard.

"It was such a big moment for us", said Tajh Boyd, Clemson's quarterback in both games. If you believe me, we'll change Clemson. Let's take a look at a few different qualities that make him one of the best quarterbacks in America. He has previously said he will forgo his senior year at Clemson to enter the draft. "But as he said, he wants the trophy nobody votes on".

"The things that happened off the field, that helped me grow as a person", Barrett told reporters. Over the course of the last two seasons, he has recorded 2,529 yards and 28 touchdowns on the ground.

Ohio State got by in a lot of games this season by being really good defensively, pretty good running the ball and it didn't matter that it was a struggle to throw because talent usually trumps everything.

Clemson junior halfback Wayne Gallman already has announced his intention to enter the National Football League draft along with Williams, and Clemson coach Dabo Sweeney said that juniors quarterback Deshaun Watson and wide receiver Artavis Scott also will leave, although Watson would not confirm that Wednesday.

After the loss to Alabama last season, Watson said, "You'll see us Tampa next year". That included Florida State's muffed punt in the first quarter that set MI up at the one-yard line. Clemson has half a dozen receivers with 29 receptions or more and those six players have combined for 37 touchdowns over the year.
