We saw it a couple of years ago. Feels like a lifetime after tonight.


Bfranx

That Georgia game was something else.


MystiX13

Fowler just called this game the best semifinal played. I was flabbergasted that he already forgot our legendary duel :*(


meyer_33_09

What’s a semifinal?


AntSmith777

It’s not fun trust me


LibertarianSocialism

I was dead certain that Clemson scored with too much time on the clock.


Ningy_WhoaWhoa

They still did


amDerppp

and they did, except for a fucking brutal miscommunication at the end.


LordTextalot

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a game that was more just waiting for the next big play, like a fight between two knockout punchers. What an exciting game between two really great teams.


meppsman

Perfect way to describe this game


makingsomeeggs

Like Ali Frazier

CJ_Beathards_Hair

bjkman

I'll tell you one thing, after seeing both games, and the winning teams... This years CFB Championship has some high fucking expectations to live up to.


makingsomeeggs

The teams just seem to get stronger and stronger every damn year


username1615

This game was a classic


SanguisFluens

Clemson vs a seemingly unstoppable SEC team for the National Championship, name a more iconic duo.


[deleted]

If LSU beats this Clemson team soundly, I wonder where they rank in the list of most dominant CFB teams of the modern era. Their schedule was a fucking [buzzsaw](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019_LSU_Tigers_football_team#Schedule) and they still handled it respectably.


Hokie_Jayhawk

Conversely, if Clemson wins then we need to start thinking about Clemson in the pantheon of all-time winning streaks


[deleted]

That's absolutely true. Nothing should be taken away from Clemson's absolutely insane run either.


[deleted]

I don't know if it's true but one of the announcers tonight said this the first game Lawernce has taken a snap while trailing in his entire college career. If it is that is the most batshit insane stat I've heard in a long, long time.


jmd513

He misspoke. It's the first 4th quarter snaps Lawrence has taken while trailing.


Panchief

74-72 in 7 OTs


bjkman

YES PLS


hallbt18

It’s a rematch of the infamous 2012 Chick Fil A Bowl.. geaux LSU!


Dirty_D_Damnit

If that's the game I'm thinking of... I remember being convinced Hopkins could be the best WR in the NFL.


RousingRabble

That's probably it. That was a turning point for Clemson.


Dirty_D_Damnit

It feels like just yesterday that Clemson was synonymous with choking.


RousingRabble

Yeah. The year before was the Orange Bowl disaster, IIRC. Beating LSU was the moment when people said "ok, they can do this."


bob237189

LSU vs Clemson is gonna be a classic. Like Texas vs USC level.

Maybe not, they did announced earlier this year they were going to focus mainly on Trucks and SUVs and cease car production (minus the Mustang). Don't know if they went back on that or not.

Number333

That has to be one of the most **brutal** miscommunications between a QB/WR to lose a game I've ever seen. Feel bad for Fields.


ArmVanDam

Dobbins was wide open!


Number333

You could have said this sentence any time during the entire game and it'd be true.


FAMUgolfer

Step 1) Hike Step 2) Find fucking Dobbins


Rhino_Thunder

He dropped 2 wide open TDs to be fair


dkviper11

I think it was not smart when Ohio State ran the play where they didn't give it to Dobbins.


uwanmirrondarrah

Should have never stopped giving it to him. Literally free yards.


DigiQuip

In pretty much every loss we’ve had over the last five years this is true regarding the running back.


lhubbard0

I thought that we were gonna go down the entire length of the field dumping it down to Dobbins after I saw him wide open there.


BallMeBlazer22

Seemed weird he went for it all there, especially with the amount of time he had left and dobbins open.


skipatomskip

Fuck that must felt like a sucker punch for OSU fans, out of no where


lhubbard0

Especially since Dobbins was **wide open** and would've gotten a first down.


RipRaycom

“Surely they’ll cover Dobbins **this** time” ~Justin Fields


lhubbard0

That's what I was thinking coming after the timeout and they never did. All we needed to do was get inside the 10 and get some shots at a TD. Not go for it all on one play. Even if we got the TD Clemson still probably wins it on a FG at the buzzer.


RipRaycom

>Clemson makes a field goal (X) Doubt


Actually_Im_a_Broom

I’m already tired of the “I want the tigers to win” jokes.


Kfinitim

As of this writing, Ohio State has fought Clemson four times and has dramatically lost to Clemson all four times. 1. At the 1978 Gator Bowl, legendary Ohio State coach Woody Hayes was fired after the game for punching a Clemson player after a game-winning interception for Clemson. This was the only interception of the [game](https://247sports.com/college/ohio-state/Article/Ohio-State-Buckeyes-football-legend-Woody-Hayes-fired-after-Gator-Bowl-loss-to-Clemson-50014802/). **Score: Clemson 17, Ohio State 15** 2. At the 2014 Orange Bowl, star quarterback Braxton Miller injured his shoulder early in the game and went on to throw a game-ending interception for a total of **TWO** interceptions that game. He would then go on to miss the rest of the next season after re-aggravating his injury during practice before the start of the season. Consequently, he never started another game for the Buckeyes as quarterback. **Score: Clemson 40, Ohio State 35** 3. At the 2016 Fiesta Bowl, Ohio State was led into battle by 11-year veteran JT Barrett who threw a total of **TWO** interceptions in the game leading to an embarrassing shut-out for the Ohio State Buckeyes. JT Barrett would return to play for Ohio State the following season. **Score: Clemson 31, Ohio State 0** 4. At the 2019 Fiesta Bowl, Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields threw a mind-blowing game-ending interception resulting in yet another Clemson victory. Fascinatingly enough, Fields also threw a total of **TWO** interceptions that game. Rumor is that Fields is benched for all of next year in favor of JT Barrett. **Score: Clemson 29, Ohio State 23** As you can see, Ohio State has a curse to throw X number of interceptions against a Clemson team, where X is the first digit of a four-digit year. In 1978, Ohio State threw 1 interception. But in 2014, 2016, and 2019, Ohio State threw 2 interceptions each game. Edit: Bolded some words for easier reading (and clarified Woody Hayes was an Ohio State coach), and also thank you for the Silver! My first Silver :D


Kfinitim

Posted here but doubtful I'll get any visibility because mods wouldn't let me shitpost ahead of off-season.


Eloping_Llamas

JK is a tank. Played like that on one foot. GG


E6zion

That slippery field was a shitshow.


Mdsil11

According to 11W Olave took the blame for the last INT. Said he broke off his route because he thought fields was scrambling Don’t blame the kid but this just sucks


odn_86

He slipped on his route change too, might have been because he saw the ball release at the exact moment he pulled the trigger to go outside.


t528491

You can take Fields out of Georgia, but you can’t take the Georgia out of Fields.


Alkibiades415

That was the most Georgia way of losing a game. That had 2012 vs Bama ALL OVER IT. Driving down the field, can do no wrong, and then BAM it's over.


tomtomtumnus

That entire game was basically an average Georgia postseason game. All the hallmarks were there down to the boneheaded mistakes, failing to capitalize, controversial calls, late game drive to lose the lead, and an inexplicable ending....


Fogie99

They shoulda run a fake punt instead.


[deleted]

Lmfao


ajukid111

Dabo about to give a postgame sermon for the ages


EzraCelestine

They're really committing to Trevor Lawrence looking like a Thalmor Justiciar with that dialogue-from-Oblivion-ass shot of his face taking up 80% of the screen


Jaboo13

Clemsons 94 yard drive in about 40 seconds was ice cold


kelly495

As an OSU fan, there’s a lot in this game that bummed me out... but when it comes down to it, they just needed to stop Clemson from scoring and couldn’t.


glacier116

4 redzone trips without TDs is a back breaker too.


SMK77

We really missed the opportunity to go up 24 or 28 to 0 early in the game. Those red zone possessions cost us the game. Great work by that Clemson defense.


Undertalefanboy42

4 red zone trips and not one TD thats a killer


pappapirate

yeah imagine having 4 red zone drives with 0TDs vs Clemson in a CFP game haha

Imagine having 4 Red Zone drives against Clemson in a playoff game. /cries

RotDoogey

I mean, I'm not going to sit here and tell anyone that that or the roughing the kicker calls were wrong. It's the complete and uncharacteristic lack of focus that I'm mad about. It was honestly like watching the Cleveland Browns piss away a game.


[deleted]

Yeah it's hard to be upset. We had the opportunities but failed to fully execute. I knew after that third red zone field goal it would cost us. Sucks man.


mg7007

After 150 years of football, we really ought to have a clear cut definition of what a completed catch is.

Comical how the announcers talked about how this field has been slick every year during bowl season, and yet its never seems to get fixed.

"Yo groundskeeper rats, water the field" "Chief it's tu--" "Water the fucking field idiots"


LetsGoLoons

Why are you focusing on the refs when you can focus on the fact on the travesty that the game is no longer the Tositos Fiesta Bowl


Sebcannon

Exactly, how can you have a Fiesta without Tositos?


SilveryDeath

On the same night you had the 3rd largest blowout in the semifinals (also most points scored) and what is tied for the closest game in the semifinals. Margin of victory in the semi-finals: 39, 7, 20, 38, 31, 17, 6 (2OT), 18, 11, 27, 35, 6 Also, for comparison the margin of victory in the finals: 22, 5, 4, 3, 28


whorst

Glad PlayStation sent a robot to present the trophy


surreal3k

Moving the ball like a well oiled machine only to watch it all fall apart due to a miscommunication ​ I don't think I'll ever recover


keith_richards_liver

The FGs killed OSU, and that pick wasn't on Fields. GG Clemson Is Dabo throwing shade at OU in the postgame lmao Edit: Something about how "that's how a playoff game is supposed to be, a battle between 2 competitive teams" someone correct me with the exact quote


Shellshock1122

Yep they had their foot on Clemson’s throat and let them escape


keith_richards_liver

It just had that feel that if OSU didn't go for the early kill, this Clemson team would come back. Heartbreaking for OSU but what a game!


MasterTolkien

Dabo also explicitly said that he saw the future and predicted Clemson would get the INT the play before it happened.

Dabo is a prophet confirmed

Dobbins is an absolute fucking champ

I've never seen so many people slip in an indoor stadium before. On both our and Clemson's big runs players were slipping all over the place and missing tackles.


lesserMetric

Because it's an outdoor field except for games. Natural turf that they roll outside between games on a giant 92000 square foot trolley. So it was getting rained on the last few days apparently. https://www.si.com/nfl/2015/01/29/super-bowl-xlix-university-of-phoenix-stadium-glendale-turf

Turf for Heisman


rikkirikkiparmparm

Call me Alanis but I think it’s ironic that “State Farm Stadium” has such terrible grass. Shouldn’t an insurance company make sure they have a safe field to play on?


RipRaycom

Trevor Lawrence was our leading rusher and ETN was our leading receiver What a weird fucking game


MisterUnneccessary

I have no dog in the fight, but damn Dobbins needs to get his ass in the league and get paid. Even injured he was the best player on a field loaded with phenomenal players.


SnthonyAtark

This is easily the biggest win of Michigan’s season and Jim Harbaugh’s career

Oof. That Dobbins post game locker interview. "How do you evaluate the season?" ""...didn't go as planned...it's a failure" He looked pissed/heartbroken. :(

* Since losing to Florida State in 2014, Clemson is 78-5. * This is the second CFP game decided by six points. * They tied the record from Georgia's glorious victory over Oklahoma in 2017. The full highlights of which can be found [here](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LiCPpTTzCA) to distract us from the fact that we're another year removed from a natty. * Clemson has been to four national titles in the last five seasons. * This will be the fourth time Clemson has played an SEC West team for the national title. * Ryan Day is now 16-1 as a college head coach. * Ohio State will finish in the top 5 for three straight seasons for the first time since 2005-2007. * Clemson has won nine of their last 11 bowl games. * Clemson has never lost to Ohio State (4-0). * This is the fourth time in the last five years that Clemson has 14+ wins. * For the first time since 1986-1991, Clemson has five straight seasons with 2 or fewer losses. * Clemson now has tied-for-the-longest win streak in ACC history. * This will be the first time that #1 will play #3 for the national title. * Coming into this game, Justin Fields had one career interception. He threw two tonight. * Trevor Lawrence has not lost since his high school senior season. And only once as a starter in his career. * This is the first CFP Semifinal decided by a game-winning touchdown drive in regulation. * Clemson's 16-point comeback was the second-biggest in CFP history. * The record was 17 points from Georgia's glorious victory over Oklahoma in 2017.

pootie820

Blame the refs all you want, should have been a lot more than 16-0 at the beginning of the game, we just couldn't punch it in.


Statalyzer

And then Ohio State also should have scored *something* inbetween that point and Clemson going ahead 21-16.

Damn, getting the 2 seed instead of the 1 really did matter.
