The Oregon Ducks take on the Ohio State Buckeyes in the college football national championship game, with both teams already having won a playoff contest and the winner becoming the undisputed champion. Oregon got here by shredding FSU by a 59-20 final score, looking unstoppable behind Heisman winning quarterback Marcus Mariota. Ohio State took down #1 ranked Alabama despite having a third string QB. The game takes place on a surprising date and has a late start time and airs on national television, though not on a channel which might have been expected.
Cardale Jones leads the Ohio State Buckeyes offense after injuries took the team’s first two QBs out of action for the season. He’s shined in both his games, beginning his career with the Big Ten conference championship and then a first round playoff game. Now he faces an even tougher test. The Oregon Ducks have been utterly dominant on offense this season, and are hoping their defense can put in another dominant showing as well.
The Oregon vs Ohio State college football national championship playoff game has a date and time of Monday January 12th at 8:30pm EST, making it the rare Monday night college game. The contest will air on TV channel ESPN, making it unavailable on network television.
