Trevor Lawrence was very skeptical of what became Clemson's game-winning play

The 2020 game is scheduled for January 13 at 8 p.m. ET inside the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.

SEC officials saw it one way during the game, but both Big Ten supervisor of officials Bill Carollo and national officiating supervisor Rogers Redding agreed that the on-field ruling of a fumble should have stood.

LSU was totally dominant over fourth seeded Oklahoma, winning 63-28.

Tebow, who was a Heisman Trophy victor and two-time national championship quarterback at Florida, knows the underdog card well.

On second-and-7, Fields threw into the end zone but no receiver was there.

Clemson: The Tigers face LSU for the first time since the 2012 Chick-fil-A Bowl.

The Ohio State Buckeyes are still smarting from a couple of controversial replay calls that went against them during a 29-23 loss to the Clemson Tigers in Saturday's College Football Playoff semifinal.

Etienne, who was bottled up on the ground much of the night, cashed in as a receiver, catching three passes for 98 yards, and two scores. While the Buckeyes raced out to a 16-0 lead and looked dominant, things changed when the refs started throwing flags for some controversial penalties - which seemed to really upset Ohio State head coach Ryan Day after the contest. Trevor Lawrence came up with what may have been the biggest play of the game on the ensuing drive when he took the ball 67-yards for a touchdown, making the game just a two-point affair heading into halftime. Running back J.K. Dobbins' two first-half drops, one that would've been a touchdown, another that could've been.

Ohio State has a lot to be proud about in terms of how this season went.

Lawrence ran the run-pass option play that had Clemson junior running back Travis Etienne leak out into the middle of the field behind the defense. Though Ohio State had them backed up late in the game, Trevor Lawrence led the Clemson football offense right down the field. Never in covering OSU football have I ever left a game as disappointed and surprised a game wasn't won that what I experienced from the press box Saturday.

Clemson played only one close game this season, a one-pointer way back in September against North Carolina.
