The unthinkable happened tonight in New Orleans. Ohio State upset Alabama. The Buckeyes came into the Sugar Bowl as 8 point underdogs and even trailed by 15 points in the second quarter before roaring back to take the lead at halftime.
Coach Saban was upset with the Tide’s turnovers and now he will go back to the drawing board after two straight Sugar Bowl losses.
Blake Simms had two touchdown passes but 3 costly interceptions were the difference in the game. Buckeyes running back Ezekiel Elliott had 230 yards rushing and two TDs. He was the real difference in the game.
Ohio State will now go on to face Oregon in the finals of the College Football Playoffs. The Ducks blew out Florida State earlier today to advance.
Last year Urban Meyer needed a win against Michigan State in the Big Ten Championship Game to play for a National Title but came up short. This year he got the win when it counted and will get a chance to win another Championship Trophy.
