Alabama Crimson Tide and Ohio State Buckeyes in college finals

Munich – The final of the college championship takes place without Trevor Lawrence. The quarterback superstar surprisingly lost the Sugar Bowl with his Clemson Tigers against the Ohio State Buckeyes 28:49.

Designated number 1 pick Lawrence couldn’t repeat his regular-season performances, throwing for 400 yards and two touchdowns but also throwing in a fumble and an interception.

Opposite Justin Fields, on the other hand, played big, rushing for 385 yards and an incredible six touchdowns — despite the Ohio State playmaker injuring his ribs late in the second quarter after a hard hit by Clemson linebacker James Skalski. Skalski was taken out of the game for targeting after the said play.

But not only Fields, but also the running game of the Buckeyes caused problems for Clemson’s defense: Running back Trey Sermon alone ran for 191 yards and a touchdown.

Alabama rolls over Notre Dame

In the final, Ohio State, which only played its seventh game of the season due to corona-related cancellations in the Sugar Bowl, meets the Alabama Crimson Tide.

Alabama dropped the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the German defensive end Alexander Ehrensberger no real chance at 31:14 in the Rose Bowl.

Alabama receiver DeVonta Smith, who was the first receiver to be voted College Player of the Year before the game, caught three touchdown passes from quarterback Mac Jones. Both are also in contention for the Heisman Trophy. Her competitors are two quarterbacks: Florida’s Kyle Trask and Trevor Lawrence.

The highlight of the game, however, was running back Najee Harris’ hurdle play in the first quarter, when he easily leapfrogged Nick McCloud to grace a 53-yard streak.

Even NBA legend Earvin “Magic” Johnson freaked out.

Alabama has reached the finals for the fifth time since the finals format was introduced in 2014, with the Crimson Tide winning the title in 2015 and 2017.
