It was a good day for Ohio State fans (and New York Jets fans, actually) as the Buckeyes dominated the Clemson Tigers in the Sugar Bowl. With a chance to play in the College Football National Championship on the line, Justin Fields and Ohio State dished out some revenge - a year after falling 29-23 to Clemson in the Fiesta Bowl.
The game featured the top two quarterback prospects - Fields and Trevor Lawrence, but it was a one-sided affair after the teams finished the first quarter locked at 14-all.
Ohio State piled on the points, coming out with a 49-28 win on the back of QB Justin Fields and RB Trey Sermon's mammoth performances.
Sermon rushed for 193 yards on 31 carries for1 touchdown, adding a further 61 yards through 4 catches at an average of 15.2 yards per catch. Sermon’s effort continued his dominance in the Big Ten championship game against North Western - rushing for 331 yards and two scores.
Justin Fields was remarkably accurate, throwing for 385 yards from 22/28 attempts, including 6 scores and 1interception.
The Buckeyes face Alabama in the National Championship.
