This is it. The granddaddy of them all, perhaps the biggest game in college football history. The first-ever College Football Playoff ends tonight, when our Ohio State Buckeyes take on the Oregon Ducks in the National Championship. Some people didn't think we deserved to make it in. Hell, some people still probably think that. (I'm looking at you, TCU fans.) We're here, though, and you won't want to miss it.
When and where is the championship game?
This year, the championship will be played in Arlington, TX, in AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys. Just like the Sugar Bowl, kickoff is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. ET, and there are no other games on today that could delay it.
Tickets were crazy expensive. How can I watch from home?
The game will be on ESPN, just like the Sugar Bowl. Our announcers for this game will be Chris Fowler and Kirk Herbstreit, with Heather Cox and Tom Rinaldi down on the sidelines. You can also listen in on 97.1 FM or any other Ohio State sports radio affiliate.
If the traditional broadcast just doesn't seem like enough for you, then check out all the other options you have for the game. It's like a smorgasbord of college football magic.
How have we done against the Ducks in the past?
In football, we have a perfect 8-0 record against Oregon. This also isn't the first time we've made sports history together. The Ducks didn't get the No. 2 spot in the tournament through good looks and charm, though. If Urban Meyer and his team want to make history with a W, it's going to take the same hard work and dedication that this team has put into overcoming every challenge this season.
