Ohio State lost a big part of their offensive line ahead of tonight’s College Football Playoff game against Clemson. Starting left guard Harry Miller will not be available to play.

Miller has tested positive for COVID-19 and will be out for Ohio State (No. 3, 6-0) in tonight’s Sugar Bowl against Clemson (No. 2, 10-1). The sophomore, in his first season as a starter, was a big part of a solid Buckeyes offensive line.

The loss of Miller is huge. While there is a ton of attention being paid to Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence (and rightly so), the Tigers defense has been dominant this year, led by a tremendous pass rush.

In Clemson, Ohio State is going up against one of the nation’s top defenses. This year, Clemson allowed just 17.5 points per game, the fewest allowed in the ACC.

They also were second in the ACC with 44 sacks generated in 11 games.

Two weeks ago in beating Notre Dame in the ACC Championship Game, Clemson registered six sacks.
