But before they kick off on South Beach, we've chose to look back at their previous uniform matchups. Alabama had three of the five Heisman Trophy finalists, as quarterback Mac Jones and running back Najee Harris joined victor Devonta Smith, a receiver, in the elite group.

He had entered the contest tied with legendary Alabama coach Bear Bryant for most titles of any college coach. Kent State played four games and averaged 49.8.

Ryan Zuke: Ohio State proved it belonged in the CFP with its rout over Clemson, but Alabama is a different animal this season. In fact, Smith had about 450 yards more than the next-closest wide receiver to him.

Still, the Buckeyes had a chance to win the game late.

Ohio State was considered the home team in this matchup and wore its scarlet jerseys, while Alabama donned all-white uniforms.

There were four Dallas players on the COVID-19 protocol list as of Sunday night, the newest addition then being Maxi Kleber. Heat guard Avery Bradley (health and safety protocols) had been ruled out of the game earlier in the day.


This was the first loss of the season for Ohio State, which wasn't even sure it would play this season until September.

The senior wide receiver was dominant before exiting the game, making 12 catches for 215 yards and three touchdowns.

Smith's average of 142.8 yards over 13 games ranked second behind Mississippi's Elijah Moore, who opted out of the Rebels' last regular-season game and bowl and finished with an eight-game average of 149.1 yards.

The Citrus Bowl rotated home designation between the Big Ten and SEC on a yearly basis, which meant it was Ohio State's turn to wear colored jerseys against Alabama's white set.

Ohio State running back Trey Sermon was transported to the hospital Monday night after suffering an apparent shoulder injury during the Buckeyes first drive of the College Football Playoff Championship.

The Heisman Trophy victor started things off by breaking the SEC career receiving yards record on the opening drive of the night.

He had the most catches since 2016, most receiving yards since 2011 and most receiving touchdowns since 2013.

UCF averaged 568.1 total yards over 10 games; Kent State averaged 606.5 in four. Ohio State (7-0) won that meeting en route to the national title.

Alabama, on the other hand, will look to end its two-game losing streak in its home uniform in the national championship. Smith stopped on his way into the Alabama locker room to gaze at a television mounted high over the left side of the entrance, checking out one of the countless Crimson Tide highlights of the evening.
