We’ve made it, college football fans.
There were plenty of moments when it seemed doubtful there would even be a 2020 season, and the one we just experienced was anything but ordinary. But by the end of the night, either Alabama (12-0) or Ohio State (7-0) will be crowned national champion in the seventh edition of the College Football Playoff.
Neither of these perennial power programs is a stranger to the big stage. The Crimson Tide have been in every playoff but one, while the Buckeyes are in their fourth playoff and second championship game.
They’re meeting head-to-head, however, for just the fifth time. Alabama holds a 3-1 series lead, but OSU’s lone victory came in the 2014 national semifinal en route to the program’s most recent championship.
How they got here: Alabama led Notre Dame wire-to-wire in a 31-14 victory in the relocated Rose Bowl game. The Buckeyes used a huge second quarter to race by Clemson 49-28 in the Sugar Bowl.
