Listen at Clemson heads to Miami, Florida on January 3rd as they take on Ohio State in the Discover ORANGE BOWL!
College Football Today hits the air 3 hours before the Discover Orange Bowl game to get you ready for one of the biggest Clemson Tigers game ever!
For Clemson, it's all about opportunity. Because of the BCS bowl system, the Tigers were able to jump higher ranked teams for an Orange Bowl bid in Miami to face Ohio State, a team that spent the season in the top five before the loss to Michigan State. Now the Tigers have to capitalize. Two keys in the game: Can Sammy Watkins and Martavis Bryant exploit Ohio State's questionable secondary? And, can the Tigers keep running quarterback Braxton Miller and a 1400-yard-rusher in running back Carlos Hyde in check? Some say Ohio State will view this game as a consolation prize, after blowing a shot at the national championship. But remember, the Buckeyes went undefeated last year and were not able to go to the post season. So, the players should be anxious to be on this national stage. Last year, the Tigers upset of LSU was a great way to end the year, and that carried over to the Georgia game to start 2013. That could happen again with an attention-grabbing win over Ohio State on January 3rd, but the Tigers will need a big performance. Which Clemson team shows up? Will it look more like last year's impressive Chick-Fil-A win or more like the debacle against West Virginia on the last Orange Bowl visit? Clemson needs some momentum heading into the off season, and this is a great opportunity to get it.
The Clemson Tigers find themselves in a position they have gotten to know quite well the last two years. Talented, highly ranked and poised for what Clemson faithful have joyfully identified as a journey to the BCS national championship game. However, there is one small fear, one lingering distrust that prevents Tiger fans from perusing the internet in hopes of securing tickets to sunny Pasadena this January. The name of the game is consistency, and if the Tigers plan on finally cashing in on their athletic prowess in hopes of making this a year to remember, they are going to have to focus on each and every game. With two pretty sporty SEC teams serving as bookends to their season, the Tigers will have to stay focused on the task at hand and not on victories of yesterday and the hopes of tomorrow. I have no doubt that with Heisman hopeful Tajh Boyd at QB, and a quickly improving defense, Clemson has an amazing chance of sustaining greatness throughout every game and running the table. But just like the 20 year IPTAY member unwilling to use up all his Delta Sky Miles on a trip to the Rose Bowl, I’ll reserve crowning the Tigers until all the votes are in.
