Clemson, Ohio State back in Arizona for another postseason

It's worked because everyone's a ball hawk. Being sound and stifling in all areas is not sufficient. "I was a big Tim Tebow fan", Watson told reporters during a Fiesta Bowl press conference Wednesday. He said once athletes get to the collegiate level, specialization in one sport needs to occur because of academic and physical demands.

This strong rushing attack helps Meyer slow down the pace and control the clock, forcing the opponent's defense to make plays if it wants the ball back - something Clemson has shown it can do even against some of the better rushing teams in college football. The other is 1963 Heisman Trophy runner-up Billy Lothridge, who went to Georgia Tech. Three years ago, the Buckeyes faced Clemson in the Orange Bowl with a defense that allowed 30 or more points four times in the regular season and then gave up 576 yards of total offense in a 40-35 loss.

Neither side will compromise its identity at this stage, so a berth in the national title game may be up for grabs in a very literal sense.

"It was not always easy to stay focused", Watson said.

The Ohio State Buckeyes never had a shot with the nation's No. 184 overall player and No. 11 offensive guard.

Fickell, a 1992 DeSales graduate who returned to being an assistant coach with the hiring of Urban Meyer in 2012, will be leaving Ohio State at the end of the season to become the University of Cincinnati's head coach.

Clemson fans have to feel good about life after Watson. The offense's fortunes essentially ride on Watson's attention to detail translating to informed evaluation of risk and reward on each throw. Four Tigers earned first-team All-ACC honors this year, including team sack leader Carlos Watkins (8.5), leading tackler Ben Boulware at linebacker (105 stops/8.8 tpg), and defensive secondary players Cordrea Tankersely and Jadar Johnson. The Buckeyes even brought in a former National Football League wide receiver Brian Hartline to try and test the defensive backs. "You don't want to scale [Watson] back at all, because that's what makes him special". "With a younger team this year, we're just relying on the leadership from the guys who have been in the playoff before to teach those guys how to prepare and how to get ready mentally for a big game like this coming up". Quarterbacks are arriving on campus better prepared to play than ever before but with less patience to serve as a backup. "But I think he's playing better football than he did past year". Will that be the case one more time? Ohio State safety Malik Hooker (6-foot-2, 205 pounds) is one of the best safeties in all of college football, and he will most likely be tasked with covering the 6-foot-5, 260 pound Leggett. Watson gets another shot at the prize that slipped from his grasp last season.

No fly zone? It's looking like that. The redshirt junior is one of the country's best receivers, as he averages just over 90 yards per game. "Going into a game like this, it's nothing out of the ordinary". Don't worry about having interceptions.

"That's why I have such respect for some of these teams like Ohio State and Alabama and even ourselves".

"He made one throw to (freshman tight end) Jake Hausmann that was pretty incredible". Like, it wasn't I feel like a lot to talk about.

Q. (Indiscernible) is that going to serve as a rallying point for you guys in terms of we've got to refocus on the task at hand?

Clemson, nevertheless, will take its chances.
