Saban shooting for sixth title with Alabama

Saban shooting for sixth title with Alabama”

Since Nick Saban took over as Alabama's coach in 2007, the Crimson Tide has signed six players from the state of Ohio, but Ohio State has not signed anyone from the state of Alabama. We played the Big Ten Championship game without our top receivers, or some of our top receivers.

"That just shows the type of person he is, and I know he's going to do great things in the future", the junior quarterback said.

In the six previous College Playoff national championship games, the underdog has won three times - Ohio State over favored OR in the 2014 season, Clemson over favored Alabama in 2016 and Clemson over favored Alabama again in 2018. That made it appropriate he was at the center of the championship trophy celebration, to applause from masked, socially distancing Crimson Tide fans scattered around the stadium. The Buckeyes played just five regular season games due to the combination of a late start to the season and OSU having three games canceled due to the coronavirus. "Nothing has changed. Alabama's team will be traveling to Miami tonight and Ohio State's guys will be arriving tomorrow". He was an Ohio State assistant coach for two years in 1980 and 1981, but was sacked by Earle Bruce after the 1981 season when Bruce fired all of OSU's defensive coaches. Urban Meyer was in his 13th season as a head coach when OSU won the 2014 championship and Nick Saban was in his 20th season as a head coach when Alabama made its first playoff trip in 2015. The Big Ten waived that requirement when it was apparent Ohio State - 5-0 at the time and the conference's best chance of making the CFP - would otherwise miss the game.

Smith, who finished his freshman season by catching the 2017 national championship winning touchdown pass from Tua Tagovailoa, ended his Alabama career as the leading career receiver in Southeastern Conference history and the most outstanding offensive player of his third title game.

"This is a great offense. It is a complete offense", Ohio State defensive coordinator Kerry Coombs said.

The 69-year-old Saban is 169-23 at Alabama, with no signs of slowing down. Harris ran for two touchdowns and caught a scoring pass.

But it's a story with few details.

The health of quarterback Justin Fields will once again be something to watch as the game goes on as he still appears to be bothered by his rib injury.

Day provides no injury updates for his players, so it is still unclear exactly what the damage was to Fields. Alabama took advantage of this gift by driving 52 yards in five plays for the game-winning touchdown with 1:04 to play. "He's done a really good job preparing, and I think that's the thing that he felt like he did a good job going into last game, was just preparing at a high level".
