Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney and Ohio State head coach Ryan Day addressed the media, Sunday, for the first time since their teams were selected to meet in the Sugar Bowl as part of the College Football Playoff. The Tigers and the Buckeyes are each coming off wins in their respective conference championship games, but their seasons have each played out very differently. Due the Big Ten’s late start, Ohio State (6-0) has only gotten in roughly half of its normal season while Clemson (10-1) has only had one game canceled due to COVID (Florida State). Ohio State’s shortened season was a topic addressed by both Swinney and Day. The coaches also touched on the number of big-time matchups their respective teams have been a part of in the last few seasons, last year’s semifinal matchup won by Clemson, how they’re approaching the quick turnaround and the possibility the playoff will expand in future seasons.
