The end of the 2020 college football season is finally upon us. To nobody’s surprise, the season finishes up with two of the bluest of blue-blood programs fighting for the National Championship.

However, this year will not feature Clemson in the title game, as they will be absent from the game for just the second time since the 2015 season. Instead, Ohio State will make its second appearance in the championship game during the playoff era. The Buckeyes won the title in the first four-team playoff back in the 2014 season, defeating Oregon in the title game 42-20.

That year, Ohio State upset top-ranked Alabama in the semifinals, but this year the Crimson Tide await in the championship. Nick Saban’s team features two finalists for the Heisman Trophy, with DeVonta Smith becoming the first wide receiver to win the award since Desmond Howard did so in 1991. Quarterback Mac Jones finished third in the voting behind Smith and Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence.

Join us tonight as we follow along with the title game, which will be broadcast in myriad ways on ESPN’s various television and online platforms. Check out a primer on those viewing options below and we’ll see you here for kickoff!
