The Buckeyes' lone loss came at No. 5 Penn State and while there were a few close calls — 17-16 at Michigan State, 24-20 versus Northwestern and an expected close call versus Michigan — most OSU games ended in blowouts victories, including back-to-back 62-3 wins over Nebraska and Maryland, two bowl teams.
The Buckeyes rank No. 3 in the country in scoring defense, No. 9 in scoring offense and No. 3 in turnover margin.
Clemson will have their hands full with Ohio State.
