Oregon And Ohio State Will Compete In First Ever College Football Championship


It was an exciting evening of football in the semifinals of the first ever college football playoffs. In the early game of the night, Oregon demolished Florida State 59-20. And if the loss wasn’t embarrassing enough, a few Oregon players taunted Florida State’s former Heisman winning quarterback, Jameis Winston with a chant of “No means no” reminding Winston and the nation of a horrible incident from 2012. Winston was accused of sexual assault by a fellow Florida State student but was cleared of any criminal charges by the University.

When Ohio State was selected a few weeks ago as one of the four semifinalists, many felt it was a mistake and that the fourth spot should have gone to TCU or Baylor. Ohio State was on its third string quarterback and many felt that his lack of experience would be problematic against coach Nick Saban’s Crimson Tide. Ohio State’s QB Cardale Jones had a shaky start but then came back decisively with his strong arm and powerful legs. Ohio State will now face Oregon and Heisman trophy winning QB Marcus Mariota on January 12th for the chance to be named the first ever College Football National Champion.
