The Buckeyes are back in the CFP Championship facing, perhaps, their most formidable opponent to date.

New Year’s Day certainly brought great tidings for Ohio State fans, with the Buckeyes effectively stomping Clemson 49-28 in the Sugar Bowl. And now, the third-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes (6-0) are facing the No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide (12-0) in the College Football Playoff National Championship game.

The Tide are eight-point favorites over the Buckeyes in a rematch of the CFP semi-final game from 2014 — when Cardale Jones and Co. famously defeated top-ranked Alabama to earn a berth in the championship game. The Buckeyes will be looking for similar magic tonight as they’re seeking their ninth national title in program history.

Let’s jump in.
