4. Travis Etienne is a game-changer
Travis Etienne is going to find a way to make plays.
Ohio State sold out to stopping Etienne from establishing a running game. Even though Etienne was unable to get anything going on the ground, he still scored three touchdowns (one rushing, two receiving), including the game-winning score.
Etienne is a play-maker and he’s going to make an impact in this game.
Not only does he have the skill, he has a ton of motivation coming into this one. LSU was his home-state school and the Tigers never even considered him until late in the process after Clemson had offered him.
Here’s an opportunity for him to have a huge game against his in-state school on the biggest stage, similar to what we saw Justyn Ross do a year ago against Alabama.
