Will Curtis Samuels be the difference maker against Clemson? He has the skills and talent to be that is certain. What is also certain is that the strong Clemson defense will be keying on him. I see JT Barrett having better luck passing to other receivers such as Brown and of course with the QB draw and scrambling when no one is open. JT will do better as the game goes on and that may well open up so opportunities late in the game for Samuels to show his stuff.
The key for the Buckeyes is for our defense to keep us in the game until our offense finds itself to start moving the ball and scoring points. If our defense allows Clemson to get up more then 10 or 14 points it will be a tough hill to climb in the second half.
