Saban shooting for sixth title with Alabama

College Football Frenzy: Buckeyes face big, bad 'Bama in title tilt Salpointe grad Lathan Ransom preparing for national title game with Ohio State

Another championship would give Saban seven overall, including a BCS title at LSU in 2003, breaking a tie for the most all time with Alabama's other coaching great, Paul Bryant.

Led by an all-star cast of wide receiver DeVonta Smith, running back Najee Harris and quarterback Mac Jones, the Crimson Tide rolled to a 52-24 win over the Buckeyes and National Football League players chimed in with their reactions.

Fields was Georgia's back-up quarterback behind Jake Fromm in 2018 when the Bulldogs lost 35-28 to Alabama in the SEC championship game.

"I'm really, really close friends with that family and with Emil", Werner said during an interview last week.

It's a game for the ages, and it should be a shootout between two of the best offenses in the country.

He played 12 defensive snaps in Ohio State's first five games, per Eleven Warriors' tracker.

For what it's worth, Ohio State coach Ryan Day on Tuesday said he "definitely" expects Fields to play.

"Well, any time you deal with that and you lose people, it is a gut punch, Day said via Zoom on Thursday. They talk about winning the national championship", said Day, as his Ohio State team is an 8-point underdog.

A Bay Area product hailing from Antioch, Calif., Harris is projected as a Top 3 running back heading into this year's draft with the opportunity to improve his stock on Monday night.

But the challenges college football faced in navigating the pandemic were unique, as Heisman Trophy victor DeVonta Smith noted after catching three touchdown passes to lead Alabama to victory. 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.

As for Sarkisian, he is on his way to Texas as the head coach.

Ohio State has 14 former 5-star recruits and 52 former 4-star recruits on its roster. He's also added 274 yards on the ground this season to add to five rushing touchdowns. "It'll be a wonderful season and one for the books". "We all went to work and it ended the way we wanted".

Smith hardly played in the second half, leaving with an injury. But he never came back into the game and returned to the sideline halfway through the fourth quarter without his uniform and his right hand wrapped up.
