1. Tanner Muse shoestring tackle
If you’ve watched the game back at all, you’ve noticed what probably was the most underrated play in the entire game.
J.K. Dobbins had already broken off one big run for a touchdown and it looked as if he was going have another.
That’s when Tanner Muse chased the All-American from behind and came away with a shoestring tackle inside the Clemson 10-yard line.
Ohio State was already up 10-0 and would’ve gone up 17-0 before the end of the first quarter had it not been for Muse’s hustle.
Instead, he made the tackles and the Buckeyes eventually were forced to kick a field goal.
Though that play wasn’t regarded so highly in the moment, looking back shows just how important it was that Muse didn’t give up and made what very well could be considered a game-saving tackle in the first quarter.
