Notre Dame Fan Guide to All 42 Bowl Games

College Football Playoff semifinal at the PlayStation Fiesta Bowl:

No. 3 Ohio State vs. No. 2 Clemson (7pm ET, ESPN)

Clemson? It’s clear that Ohio State has the history with Notre Dame, but do we really want a rematch from last season? This game is hard because no one wants to see Clemson get destroyed in the National Championship, but no one wants Ohio State to win.

That doesn’t mean the Buckeyes will bet Labama. No matter who the Crimson Tide play they’re going to win. But it’s hard to say it wouldn’t be enjoyable watching Ohio State lose in humiliating fashion.

Notre Dame fans, I’m sorry for how hard this is. It shouldn’t be difficult to say root for Clemson, but the final outcome for them isn’t going to be pretty. You’re basically hoping that Ohio State or Clemson wins one game to get embarrassed in the BCS National Championship.
