SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Love the smell of freshly cut grass in the late afternoon.

You can imagine what the scent of the turf is at University of Phoenix Stadium, where No. 2 Clemson and No. 3 Ohio State are set to do battle in roughly 24 hours as part of the College Football Playoff at the Fiesta Bowl. In the photo above, you can see what it looks like courtesy of Big Ten Network.

It looks like the Playoff decided to paint each end zone the colors of the respective teams, something we all should agree looks crispy.

Kickoff is itching closer and closer. It is set for 7 p.m. ET Saturday.
