Next, the #2 Clemson Tigers (10-1) face the #3 Ohio State Buckeyes (6-0) in the Allstate Sugar Bowl, the second of two college football semifinals this New Year’s Day. The winner moves on to National Championship Game in Miami, Florida on January 11th. COVID has drastically changed college football, and the Sugar Bowl will be no exception, as the Superdome is usually packed with fans for this huge game, but this year will obviously be an exception.

The Sugar Bowl, taking place in the beloved Superdome in New Orleans, usually makes this game a must watch for Saints fans. Along with the Fiesta, Orange, and Rose, the Sugar Bowl has long been regarded as one of the most prestigious and celebrated bowl games in all of college football, and this playoff game continues to add to that prestige. Fans or no fans, this game could be a good one!
