It is almost game day. The College Football Playoff semifinals kick off tomorrow with the Peach Bowl as the No. 1 LSU Tigers take on the No. 4 Oklahoma Sooners at 4 p.m. ET. Then, the game that we have all been waiting for, the No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes will face off against the defending national champion No. 3 Clemson Tigers in the Fiesta Bowl.

So, as we lead up to the game, we chatted with Ryan Kantor, the assistant editor of SB Nation’s Clemson site Shakin The Southland on the podcast about what the Buckeyes should expect from the Tigers.

We talk about how important J.K. Dobbins will be to Ohio State’s offensive success and why Ryan isn’t as worried about Justin Fields with the ball in his hands. We also talk about what OSU will need to do to attack Clemson’s prolific passing attack and much more.

One of the interesting topics that we discussed was just how disrespected the Clemson team and fans have felt throughout their playoff run this season.
