What CST thinks about Ohio State-Clemson today

                                               Ohio State Buckeyes vs. Clemson Tigers

December 31, 2016

Actual result: Vox nails it. Well, the Clemson number at least. Ohio State scores nilch. Uggh.

Ohio State 42, Clemson 20

I am obviously a homer but can't see the Buckeyes scoring less than 40 or giving up more than 20.

This game has a little bit of everything. All eyes in Cleveland will be focused not on the Buckeyes, but on potential Browns QB Deshaun Watson.
Ohio State 38, Clemson 28

A slow start by JT Barrett and the Buckeyes offense could mean trouble for Ohio State's championship hopes. But with a month of preparation, I trust Urban Meyer to concoct a game plan that will send his squad to its second title game in three years.

Last time the Buckeyes and JT Barrett were insulted, they destroyed Oklahoma. I'm hoping for a similar result here. Plus Urban Meyer is nearly unbeatable when he has this much time to prepare for a team.

Clemson 31, Ohio State 30

I would set the over/under on the amount of times Chris Fowler, Herbie and the sideline reporter emphatically say "Dabo Swinney" at 950. Then bet the over.

I re-watched the Alabama and Oregon games from 2015 this week, so I am running on blind faith. Counting on JT to channel his inner car deal and pull it out for us.

Urb finds a way.

Buckeyes triumph in matchup as lopsided as the 2016 election, as long as you ignore the popular vote! Ohio State will be covered in glory in 2017, much as our new Master will when he delivers on every single one of his campaign promises, which will definitely happen!
