The 2016 college football season ends tonight. Here's how to take in all the action.

Erich Schlegel-USA TODAY Sports

A team Ohio State beat in their national coming out (back?) party a year ago takes on the one that ended the Buckeyes' season in heartbreak two seasons ago with the national title on the line.

Though the Buckeyes would love nothing more than to be playing in the game -- or sitting with their heads held high knowing they gave all they could but were bested by one of the two sides playing for 'the natty' -- they'll have to settle for watching their coach, Urban Meyer, do pregame commentary and then take in the action as fans like the rest of us.

In terms of the players to know, former Ohio State commit Deshaun Watson surely is one. Everyone knows Heisman Trophy winner running back Derrick Henry, but the Tide have plenty of four and five-star talent all over both sides of the field. Tackle Cam Robinson is a load as is center Ryan Kelly; a big part of why Henry had the success that he's had. Jonathan Allen and A'Shawn Robinson anchor the Tide defensive line while LB Reggie Ragland and safety Eddie Jackson QB the back seven.
