Tigers, Buckeyes won't tune in to Peach Bowl



Both Clemson's Dabo Swinney and Ohio State's Urban Meyer made it clear during Friday's last Fiesta Bowl press conference their teams won't pay attention to the playoff game preceding theirs.

The Peach Bowl, pitting top-ranked Alabama against Washington, kicks off Saturday at 3 p.m., four hours before the Tigers and Buckeyes square off.

"Our days are incredibly structured on game day, all the way until we literally get on the bus," Swinney said. "And if you see any of (the Peach Bowl), it's just briefly when you're back in your room for a minute or two getting ready to go. But no, we certainly don't play it on the bus."

Added Meyer: "I wasn't sure there was a playoff game before ours."
