Ohio State football is one game away from winning the National Championship even after a season turned upside by COVID-19 and having played just six games before being picked for the College Football Playoff. 

The Buckeyes overcame it all. 

Despite some doubting the Buckeye's worthiness of being in the College Football Playoff, they have made it to the final game. 

Ohio State piled up 639 yards on No.2 Clemson in the Sugar Bowl and beat the team led by the overwhelming favorite to be taken No.1 in the NFL Draft this spring in Trevor Lawrence, 49-28 

Ohio State will play Alabama in the National Championship Game in Miami on Jan. 11. It'll be the first time championship game appearance by the Buckeyes since they won the first College Football Playoff in 2014.

That year Ohio State beat Alabama, who was the favorite to win the championship and the No.1 seed in the playoff. Clemson was the preseason No.1 team in the nation and played for the championship a year ago, losing to LSU. 

Here's how Ohio State fans celebrated the Buckeye's Sugar Bowl win and advancement to the National Championship game.
