While the rest of the college football world turned its attention to the 2017 season, there’s still one team that’s living in the past for at least a little bit longer.
Rightfully so, that team is the defending champion Clemson Tigers.
You can’t blame Clemson one bit for reliving the College Football Playoff. And on Saturday, the Tigers had an especially fun troll of Ohio State, who they beat 31-0 in the Fiesta Bowl to advance to the national championship for the second-straight season.

The savagery the Clemson band had is even funnier when you consider that Kent State is from Ohio. And Kent State — one of the worst teams in college football over the past few seasons — scored a field goal in the first half as Clemson had a 28-3 halftime lead.
It’s almost as if Clemson let Kent State score.
Kent State is on the board with a field goal, making them the team from Ohio with the most points against Clemson in the last 365 days.

At least Ohio State won on Thursday.
