PlayStation Fiesta Bowl

Saturday, December 28
8:00 ET, ESPN
University of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, AZ
Ohio State vs. Clemson

Knee-Jerk Instant Analysis: Without looking at the line, the first guess is that the world is going to jump on Clemson right away, and then everything will swing back a few weeks later as a flood of money comes in on Ohio State.

Here’s the issue. Clemson has looked amazing playing a big bunch of whatever. Ohio State has looked vulnerable at times with a rough first half in the Big Ten Championship against Wisconsin and for a bit against Michigan and Penn State. Without a fully-formulated opinion quite yet …

First Thought Prediction: Ohio State 37, Clemson 34
First Thought Line Guess: Clemson -3

Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl

Saturday, December 28
4:00 ET, ESPN
Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta, GA
LSU vs. Oklahoma

Knee-Jerk Instant Analysis: It’s going to be easy to assume that LSU walks into this and wipes up a shaky Oklahoma team that needed overtime to get by Baylor and turns the ball over way too often. It’s going to be easy to assume that because it’ll be right … no need to overthink this, at least not yet. LSU is beatable, but not by this Sooner team unless this gets into a wild firefight and it comes down to Jalen Hurts needing to come through late.

First Thought Prediction: LSU 45, Oklahoma 30
First Thought Line Guess: LSU -13.5
Actual Initial Line: LSU -12.5
