A season of college football that was highly questionable this summer has reached its climax. Alabama (12-0) and Ohio State (7-0) will face off in the National Championship game after the Buckeyes weren’t even sure they would play as the Big Ten initially canceled their football season because of COVID-19, for reverse course.
Following the controversy surrounding his inclusion in the college football playoffs after playing just six games, Ohio State proved it belonged to Clemson in the semifinals. A high octane offense in Alabama, however, can be too difficult to overcome.
