- Ohio State University 24-52 Alabama
- Wide receiver explodes for 215 yards against Buckeyes
- Nick Saban wins record seventh national title
DeVonta Smith was uncoverable, Najee Harris unstoppable and Mac Jones impeccable. With a performance that was both surgical and explosive, No 1 Alabama won the College Football Playoff national championship game 52-24 against No 3 Ohio State on Monday night.
The final game of a college football season in a pandemic, a season that was uncertain to be played in the summer and filled with disruptions in the fall, ended in the most predictable fashion: Alabama (13-0) as national champion for the sixth time in the last 12 years under coach Nick Saban.
