On Friday night, the Ohio State Buckeyes will be taking on the Clemson Tigers in the 2014 Orange Bowl at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. Not only will this game be the final outing for Ohio State this season, but it could also be the final game of quarterback Braxton Miller’s collegiate career.
Miller is still mulling his decision on whether or not to declare for the 2014 NFL Draft and he should have his decision made shortly after the conclusion of the team’s bowl game.
According to reports, his decision will come by the end of the week.
From ESPN’s SportsCenter:
Ohio State QB Braxton Miller says he’ll make a decision on the NFL by the end of the week. Buckeyes face Clemson this Friday in Orange Bowl.

Underclassmen who are considering forgoing their final years of eligibility to enter the NFL Draft have until January 15 to make their decision.
If Miller declares, it will be interesting to see where he is drafted.
It is unlikely that Miller will be a first-round pick, but he could still hear his name called on Day 2 or early in Day 3.
