Photos: Clemson wins Fiesta Bowl semifinal

Clemson, Louisiana State go head-to-head Monday, Jan. 13

After looking out of the game early, No. 3 Clemson came from down 16-0 to defeat No. 2 Ohio State in the Fiesta Bowl College Football Playoff semifinal game Saturday in Glendale and return to the National Championship Game to defend its 2019 title and play for its third in four years.

Even down 16-0, Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said he never doubted his team.

“There was never one second that I did not think we were not going to win the game,” he said. “That’s the honest answer. Trevor and I talked about it on the sideline: ‘Man, is this fun or what? I’m not real sure how we’re going to win this thing, but we’re going to win the game, and it is going to be an epic thing.’”

-- Clemson Coach Dabo Swinney

Clemson will face Heisman winner Joe Burrow and No. 1 Louisiana State Monday, Jan. 13 in New Orleans, about an hour drive from LSU’s campus in Baton Rouge.
