Number 2 Ohio State and number 3 Clemson play in the Fiesta Bowl in Glendale Saturday for a spot in the College Football Playoff national championship game.

Both teams are led by star sophomore quarterbacks from the state of Georgia. Ohio State's Justin Fields has accounted for 50 touchdowns but was nursing a sore left knee at the end of the season. Clemson's Trevor Lawrence led the Tigers to a national championship last year as a freshman.

The Tigers and Buckeyes have been in this spot before. Clemson beat Ohio State 31-0 in a CFP semifinal at the Fiesta Bowl in 2016 on its way to its first national title.

The game will be televised nationally on ESPN.
