Buckeye Xtra

The Ohio State football team plays Alabama on Jan. 11 in the 2021 College Football Playoff National Championship Game in Miami. 

The game features the undefeated Big Ten champions and the undefeated SEC champions and is the first game against the two legendary football programs since the 2015 Allstate Sugar Bowl. 

2021 NFL draft:Ohio State and Alabama's best prospects in the National Championship Game

Since then, the programs have done nothing but churn out NFL prospects and win many college football games. Alabama is seeking its third CFP championship since that first year. Ohio State, meanwhile, is making its third CFP appearance since winning the first CFP championship. 

The 2020 Ohio State roster features the seventh-place finisher in the Heisman Trophy, the Big Ten’s best defensive back and the single-game rushing record holder in Ohio State history. A handful of Ohio State’s players are considered NFL prospects. 

But the Buckeyes and its roster has been hit hard with COVID-19 related issues and other injuries. 

Here’s a look at the Ohio State football team’s depth chart along with several key statistics.
