Ohio State could be facing Clemson without one of its best pass-rushers.

Urban Meyer said that defensive end Noah Spence did not travel with the team to Miami because "he is working on some personal issues at home." However, that doesn't mean there isn't a chance that Spence won't be making the trip down before Friday's game. When asked if Spence could be with the team by then Meyer said "I hope."

And if I were Meyer I'd be hoping for Spence's return as well.

Spence, a sophomore, leads Ohio State and is second in the Big Ten with 7.5 sacks this season. He also has 50 tackles, 14 for loss, four quarterback hurries and a forced fumble. He's been a disruptive force for the Buckeyes all season, which Ohio State could certainly use against one of the most explosive offenses in the country in Clemson.
