This BCS ORANGE BOWL game coming to you on Friday, January 3rd, 2014 is the 4th of the five BCS Bowl games to be played with the 5th and final game the BCS Title game which will be between FSU and Auburn on the 6th of January.  The Orange Bowl game features the Clemson TIGERS (10-2, 7-1 ACC) playing the Ohio State BUCKEYES (12-1, 8-0 Big Ten) and the game is played at the Sun Life Stadium (72,230) in Miami Gardens, Florida with kickoff scheduled for 8:30 pm ET on ESPN.  

According to a review of this bowl game at an Offshore Betting site, the Buckeyes of Ohio State only loss came at a very unfortunate time as it knocked them out of the BCS Title game with the loss to the Spartans of Michigan State in the Big Ten Title game.  But this bowl game will allow the Buckeyes a chance to win its 1st BCS Bowl game.  For Clemson their back in the South Florida  area replacing FSU, one of the two teams that beat Clemson this season, the other being South Carolina.  The two teams will be highly focused to win this game in a manner of redemption.

At SBG Global the opening odds for those whom Bet on College football, the Clemson Tigers are the underdog at +2 ½ Even with the total at 69 and Clemson +120 on the Money line.  The Tigers last game was a big disappointment to this team as they lost to South Carolina 31-17 which was the Gamecocks 5th consecutive win over Clemson.  Clemson also had hopes for the SEC Title but that was squashed with Missouri defeating Texas A&M.  What is really bothering the Clemson team is, why they seem to set records in most games and then face one of their rivals for a loss? Tigers QB Boyd had a bad game as he was sacked some five times and threw two interceptions, and he was unable to create a score in the 4th quarter.  In this game he needs to return to his high powered offense winning form.

The Buckeyes QB Miller for the season had 32 TDs and he ran for over 1,000 yards this season while RB Hyde scored 14 TD’s rushing for 1,408 yards.  The Buckeyes defense had a great season not allowing a 100 yard rusher until the loss to the Spartans while they led the nation with 40 sacks for the 2013 season.  The experts call the game a high-scoring toss and whichever QB has the best day, his team will win this Bowl Game.
