The two major undefeated teams will meet. That actually makes sense, for a change.

Unfortunately, the two New Year’s Day playoff games were not close enough to stay tuned. THE Ohio State University scored 35 in the first half against Clemson, although according to ESPN’s analytics, Clemson came into the Ohio State game as a very slight favorite, 50.3-49.7. Clemson’s defense wasn’t up to the task as Ohio State gained 640 yards from scrimmage. Justin Fields threw six TDs with only 28 passes, and State dominated the rushing yardage 254-44.

The same ESPN analytics gave Alabama an 81% chance of winning the other game. While it is true that Notre Dame fell behind 14-0 against the Tide and could never recover, the team stats indicate that the game was closer than indicated by the score.

The highlight of the game was this incredible demonstration of how a super-athlete can avoid a tackle. (Talk about pure athletic ability!)
