Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney and Ohio St. head coach Urban Meyer got to know each other while Meyer was a college football analyst two years ago, and the two coaches spent the better part of a half hour tossing compliments to each other during a Sunday evening teleconference with Orange Bowl CEO Eric Poms and the two coaches.
Clemson (10-2) will face Ohio State (12-1) in the Discover Orange Bowl on Friday evening January 3, 2014 at 8:30 PM at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, FL. This will be the second time in the last three years Clemson has played in the Discover Orange Bowl. Both teams are ranked in the top 12 of both polls entering the game. Clemson is 11th by USA Today and 12th by Associated Press, while Ohio State is sixth by USA Today and seventh by Associated Press.
