Clemson had another great season under head coach Dabo Swinney, led by the dynamic tandem of QB Tajh Boyd and Sammy Watkins. They come into this one at 10-2 on the season, only losing to two very good teams in the top-ranked Florida State Seminoles and the top 10-ranked South Carolina Gamecocks. After deciding to come back for his senior season following last year, this will be the final game for Boyd as the man under center for the Tigers.
Ohio State was shooting for a much more prestigious bowl game, but those hopes were dashed by the Michigan State Spartans in the Big Ten Championship Game. Nonetheless, the Buckeyes, under head coach Urban Meyer, walk into this one at 12-1 on the season behind QB Braxton Miller and a stout defensive unit.
