If you’re just now learning that the Fiesta Bowl’s official sponsor is no longer a corn chip but rather a gaming console, then we’re guessing you don’t follow college football too closely. Grab some Tostitos anyway; here’s all you need to know about the game. This year’s Fiesta Bowl will take place on New Year’s Eve, Saturday, December 31, at Glendale’s University of Phoenix Stadium, One Cardinals Drive, and will feature the nation’s second- and third-ranked teams, Clemson and Ohio State. The matchup features two standout quarterbacks in Ohio’s J.T. Barrett and Clemson’s DeShaun Watson — in addition to Clemson’s dynamic wide receiver Mike Williams. The winner of Saturday’s game will head to Tulsa to get smoked by Alabama in the National Championship game. Probably. Kickoff is at 5 p.m., and tickets are $100 and up.
