The Clemson Tigers and the Ohio State Buckeyes meet in college football action from University of Phoenix Stadium on Saturday. 

Clemson rolls into this one at 13-0 overall. Over their last five games, the Tigers have taken out Wofford, North Carolina State, Wake Forest, South Carolina and Virginia in succession. 

In the win over the Cavaliers, Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence threw for 302 yards with four touchdowns, and Travis Etienne had 114 yards and a TD rushing. Tee Higgins logged 182 yards and three scores on nine receptions there.

Over on the Ohio State side, they’re 13-0 as well. Across their last five games, the Buckeyes have taken out Maryland, Rutgers, Penn State, Michigan and Wisconsin. 

In the win over the Badgers, Ohio State’s Justin Fields threw for 299 yards and three TDs, and JK Dobbins had 172 yards with one TD rushing. Chris Olave managed 94 yards on five catches there as well. 

The Tigers are 4-0 ATS in their last four on grass and 10-1 ATS in their last 11 in December. Clemson is 9-1 ATS in the last 10 bowl games and 16-5 ATS in their last 21 neutral-site games. 

Meanwhile, the Buckeyes are 5-1 ATS in their last six bowl games and 10-2 ATS versus a team with a winning record. Ohio State is 40-18 ATS in their last 58 on grass and 1-4 ATS in their last five versus the ACC. 

Clemson has really only had one “tough” game this year, and oddly enough that was against North Carolina in a slim 21-20 victory way back on September 28. After that, the Tigers went on a seven-game run where they allowed 14 points or fewer in each outing—until they allowed a whopping 17 to Virginia in the 62-17 blowout December 7. 

As for Ohio State, they had to run through a gauntlet of three ranked teams at the end of the year, and to their credit they posted convincing victories in each. With two powerhouse teams meeting up here, this should be a really fun matchup. 

I expect this one to be fairly close, and the toughest game of the year for either team. With the line at a field goal or so I like the Clemson offense to pull away on the cover here.
