Mark May Makes His Pick For The Clemson-Ohio State Fiesta Bowl

Here's who ESPN college football analyst Mark May likes in the Fiesta Bowl.

Mark May, at halftime of today's Miami Beach Bowl, made his pick for the Fiesta Bowl bout between Clemson and Ohio State.

Unsurprisingly, he's picking the Tigers.

"I like Clemson," he said.

May pointed to Clemson being the hungrier team, having lost to Alabama in the College Football Playoff title game a year ago and having players with more experience. Ohio State's a young team, with only a couple of players having the experience of playing significant snaps in a big-time bowl game.

Here's video of May's pick.

Anyone surprised?

Clemson and Ohio State are set to kick off at 7 p.m. E.T. on Dec. 31. The game will be televised on ESPN.
