Ohio State rocks Clemson to advance in College Football Playoff

Justin Fields threw six touchdown passes and No. 3 Ohio State stunned Clemson with a dominant 49-28 win in the Sugar Bowl on Friday night at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Leading 35-14, Ohio State received the opening kickoff of the third quarter and picked up 63 yards, but Fields was intercepted in the end zone on a third down play that snuffed out a scoring chance for the Buckeyes.

The Tigers took advantage, driving 80 yards for a touchdown to pull within 14. Lawrence completed 5 of 6 passes, including a 10-yarder to Cornell Powell for a touchdown.

Ohio State struck right back as Trey Sermon kept the drive alive with a big third down catch and run then Fields lofted a rainbow pass to Chris Olave for a 56-yard touchdown to restore the three-touchdown lead with 4:55 on the clock.

The Buckeyes weren’t done, either.

When they got the ball back early in the fourth quarter, Fields went up top again, this time finding Jameson Williams for a 45-yard score that pushed the lead to 28 points.

The Tigers got seven of those points back on a 26-yard pass from Lawrence to Powell with 10:42 left, but that was all for the night.

Fields finished 22-for-28 passing for 385 yards. He also ran for 42 yards.

Trey Sermon added 193 yards on the ground while Olave led them in receiving with 132 yards on six catches. Olave scored twice through the air, as did Jeremy Ruckert.

Lawrence threw for 400 yards for the Tigers.

Ohio State advanced to face No. 1 Alabama in the National Championship Game on Jan. 11 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Fla.
