Clemson, Ohio State now listed as co-favorites for National Title

The Clemson Tigers and Ohio State Buckeyes have had quite the rivalry since the Playstation Fiesta Bowl a little less than six months ago.

Ever since Clemson rallied to defeat Ohio State there has certainly been no love lost between the two programs. Ohio State fans- and their administration, for that matter- have maintained that Clemson only won the game based on some help from the officiating crew, specifically a fumble that was later reversed that took a touchdown off the board for the Buckeyes.

Even though Ohio State had multiple opportunities to win the game late- including holding the lead with Clemson backed up at its own 6-yard line with less than two minutes remaining- no one wants to give the Tigers credit for making plays when it mattered most.

Well, it looks as if Ohio State may be able to get its shot at Clemson sooner rather than later. The two programs are no listed as co-favorites for the National Championship.

Clemson should be the favorite, but you can’t argue with OSU’s talent

Brett McMurphy shared the latest Vegas odds for the CFB Playoff National Championship and they have both Clemson and Ohio State listed at 11/4 odds.

When looking at these two teams, it’s clear that both have some question marks, but they also have plenty of talent.

Ohio State will return Justin Fields at quarterback, but the Buckeyes lose some talented play-makers- including J.K. Dobbins– and the vast majority of starters on their defense. The Tigers, on the other hand, return stars Trevor Lawrence and Travis Etienne in the backfield, but will have to replace four starters on their offensive line from a year ago.

Next. South Carolina's recruiting pitch is absolutely depressing. dark

Outside of the two top teams, Alabama is third at 5/1 and Georgia is at 8/1. Another SEC team, Florida, is listed at 12/1 and then Oklahoma is at 16/1.
