Glendale will be the focus of the college basketball world in 2017, when the Final Four comes to the Valley. But before wrapping up 2016, Glendale will be the epicenter of college football. The College Football Playoff committee will send Ohio State and Clemson to the University of Phoenix Stadium to play in the National Semi-Final matchup.
The Buckeyes did not win the Big 10, lost to Big 10 Champ Penn State, but were still awarded one of the four playoff spots. Clemson was the winner of the ACC Conference. Vegas bookmakers have listed the Buckeyes as a 3-point favorite over the Tigers.
