Defense forces a 3 and out on the opening possession of the 2Q but a ridiculous Clemson punt pins OSU back inside the 20.

Ohio State starts with a 1st & 15 after a Knox false start and proceeds to go 3 and out.  Samuel let what would've been a 1st down slip through his hands on 3rd down.  Offense can't get anything going.  

Clemson put together a nice drive but decided to test Malik the Freak and it ended poorly for the foreign team.  Hooker picks off Watson in the end zone.  It's Watson's 2nd pick of the game.  

OH HEY A FIRST DOWN. Let's do more of that. JT to Samuel and a generous spot leads to a 1st down.  Then the football gods fix the ref's error and Ohio State is forced to punt.  No consistency or rhythm to the offensive play calling.

Clemson on the other hand has consistency and rhythm.  Watson picks up a huge gain on the ground.  Then finds CJ Fuller on a wheel route for a TD.  Admittedly, it was a great catch by Fuller.

OSU gets the ball back with 2:21 in the half and two timeouts.  Aaaand we go 3 and out. 

That was an ugly a half of Ohio State football as I've seen in a long time.
