Players of the Game.

It took a team effort to blast Clemson 49-28 and as a result, there were many player of the game honors to give out.

The Buckeyes named Justin Fields and Trey Sermon their co-offensive players of the game, gave the entire starting defensive line player of the game honors, and named both Marcus Williamson and Jameson Williams special teams players of the game.

Fields had arguably the best game of his college career on Friday night, going 22-for-28 through the air for 385 yards and six touchdowns with a lone interception along with eight carries for 42 yards on the ground – all after leaving the game with what he called a rib injury in the second quarter.

Sermon followed up his record-breaking Big Ten Championship game performance another stellar showing, rushing for 193 yards and a touchdown on 31 carries, good for 6.2 yards per carry.

The Ohio State defensive line dominated the point of attack, accounting for eight total tackles, four tackles for loss and two sacks.

Williamson and Williams also earned player of the game honors for their dominant perforamcne on special teams.

Next up, the Buckeyes will face Alabama in the College Fooball Playoff championship game on Monday, Jan. 11.
