Former Buckeyes legend Maurice Clarett is feeling extremely confident going into Saturday night's Chick-fil-A Bowl against No. 1 Georgia.

Taking to Twitter ahead of kickoff, Clarett predicted, "We about to hang 50 on these fools tonight."

Fans reacted to Clarett's bold tweet this AM.

"I didn’t believe until this tweet," one user said. "LFG."

"Your crazy man," another laughed.

"I guarantee Georgia's defense will struggle keeping up with the Buckeye offense and its weapons," another fan commented.

Ohio State enters New Year's Eve's action as a touchdown underdog to the top-ranked Bulldogs. Something that the Buckeyes haven't been in any game this year.

The Bucks certainly have the offensive firepower to hang with anyone, but after their showing against Michigan in "The Game," OSU has its doubters.

UGA and Ohio State are set to kick things off at 8 PM ET on ESPN. Should be a fun one down in Atlanta.
