Because we can't predict host bids in this exercise, the higher seed in the College Football Playoff rankings will host each game.

"Trevor Lawrence is this generational talent at the quarterback position and we've got this great pass rusher (Chase Young) from Ohio State, who has been double and triple-teamed now for three-straight games", Klatt said. App State, too, and Miami (Ohio), Minnesota, Georgia, LSU, Boise State, and Florida Atlantic.

Whether counting each of the past three Big Ten championship games or the annual series with MI or other Big Ten and non-conference games with national attention, the Buckeyes can fairly say they have big-game experience. The defending national champion Tigers, 13-0 on the season and on a 28-game winning streak, possess the nation's No. 4 scoring offense (46.5 points/game) and No. 1 scoring defense (10.6 points/game). The Buckeyes debuted at No. 1 in the inaugural CFP rankings of the season but slid down a spot after LSU defeated Alabama on November 9, before returning to the top pile in Week 13.

Clemson has been a CFP regular.

It will also be the Buckeyes' fourth bowl game versus Clemson, with the most recent coming in the 2016 College Football Playoff, also in the Fiesta Bowl.

The Buckeyes and the Tigers will kick off at 8 p.m. E.T. on ESPN. The No. 2-ranked Buckeyes will face No. 3-ranked Clemson in the PlayStation Fiesta Bowl on Saturday, Dec. 28 at 8 p.m. ET in Glendale, Ariz.

Who is the favorite to win the title?

Semifinal games will be played on December 28, and the national championship game will be held on January 13, 2020, at 8 p.m at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.

Oddsmakers think LSU is going to crush Oklahoma in the college football playoff.

The rest pairings for the other New Year's Six bowls will be set later Sunday when the committee releases its complete top 25.

Despite that defeat, Wisconsin will head to Pasadena to take on No. 6 OR in this year's Rose Bowl. Central in Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
