Alabama and the Crimson Tide have been called a college football dynasty that is currently still operating in that dynasty time period. They have clearly been the best team in football over the last handful of years, taking championship after championship with head coach Nick Saban.
However, those times have come to an end, as they lost last night to the Ohio State Buckeyes, who will now be going heads up against the Oregon Ducks to determine who takes the title. There has been a ton of controversy this year around the league as they have adopted a new mini playoff series that will elect a National Champion, rather than just a bowl game to determine the winner, as I learned for the first time on ImgFave. It has proven to be effective already, as the fourth seed Ohio State Buckeyes shocked the world last night and took down Alabama by a touchdown that left them ecstatic and hoping to bring the championship back to the state of Ohio, and that’s who Igor Cornelsen has been rooting for.
Although it was a very good game that looked like Alabama was going to win early on, the Buckeyes fought back hard throughout the game and started to capitalize on the forced and unforced turnovers that were plaguing Alabama in the second half. In the end, the Buckeyes sat a touchdown ahead of Alabama as the clock ran out, putting them in the driver’s seat to win a National Title in the final game of the season.
