Mark May is at it again. Even during the holidays, the former ESPN college football analyst can’t help but take shots at Ohio State.

On Christmas Eve, Dave Briggs of the Toledo Blade caught up with May to talk about the matchup between No. 2 Ohio State and No. 3 Clemson in the Fiesta Bowl. May, who has taken plenty of joy in trolling and picking against the Buckeyes in his career, didn’t have a change of heart this season.

So, when May was asked for a prediction for the Fiesta Bowl, he started out by saying he’s just been “toying” with fans of Ohio State. Then, he reverted back to his old ways.

“Buckeye fans, deep down you know I’ve loved you forever and ever over the years, I was just toying, playing with you guys,” May said. “Nah, that wasn’t true. You know I was sticking it to you, and I’ll stick it to you again. I’m not done yet, I’ll be back.

May then made his prediction.

“To tell you the truth, I think Dabo Swinney and Clemson are going to rock the house,” May said. “Remember the last time you faced Dabo? Did you score a point? Are you going to score a point this time? I got Clemson rolling again, 38 — I’ll give you a point — 38-7.”

Clemson is currently a 2.5-point favorite in the Fiesta Bowl. The last time the two teams met was in the College Football Playoff semifinal in 2016, a game the Tigers won 31-0.
