Head Coach Urban Meyer led the Ohio State football team to its eight National Title in school history. Running back Ezekiel Elliot carried the team, rushing for 246 yards and scoring four touchdowns. Elliot will return next season, as he did not declare for the National Football League (NFL) draft.

After an almost perfect season, the Ohio State Football team won the inaugural College Football Playoff championship game over the Oregon Ducks by a score of 42-20.

Head Coach Urban Meyer led the team to its eighth National Championship. He now holds three of his own (having won two with Florida).

Students at SHS had mixed emotions when it came to the game:

“It was one of the most incredible sights I have seen in my life. Being the huge Ohio State fan that I am, I was relieved to finally see my team achieve such an incredible feat,” senior Jeffery Ferrell said.

“A very disappointing performance from my Ducks. They did not play up to their full potential, but I give props to Ohio State and Running back Ezekiel Elliot. He had a heck of a game, and there was nothing we could do to stop him. He is going pro soon for sure,” junior Joseph Mattis said.

“One word to describe it was unbelievable. I never imagined a National Championship after Ohio State’s early season loss to Virginia Tech (35-21). It made my studying for exams much less stressful,” sophomore Noah Stern said.
