Ohio State Buckeyes vs Oregon Ducks NCAAF National Championship Call
Oregon Ducks: Aiming for first National Championship
Playing in the NCAAF title game for just the second time in school history, Oregon is aiming for their first ever National Championship. The Ducks first shot at glory ended with a 22-19 loss to Cam Newton and the Auburn Tigers in the 2011 BCS Tostitos Bowl. Led by Heisman Trophy winner QB Marcus Mariota, Oregon snapped a 29-game Florida State winning streak as the Ducks soared past the Seminoles with a 59-20 blowout in the Rose Bowl two weeks ago to earn their title shot. Oregon forced five FSU turnovers in that playoff contest.
Ohio State Buckeyes: Wild season culminates with a title game shot
Posted with a 10/0 futures price back in August 2014, Ohio State lost Heisman trophy candidate QB Braxton Miller in the preseason and the Buckeyes title odds skyrocketed to 50/1. Following a 35-21 home loss to lowly Virginia Tech in September, with second string QB J.T. Barrett under center, the number doubled to 100/1 at some sportsbooks. With third string QB Cardale Jones now guiding the ship, Ohio State earned their trip to the Lone Star State with a 42-35 win over #1 ranked Alabama in the Sugar Bowl on New Year's Day.
Ducks vs Buckeyes National Championship Call: An historic night is on tap at AT&T Stadium as the first "true" NCAAF Champion will be crowned at about 10:00 PM MT. Though largely ancient history, Ohio State is 8-0 vs Oregon with the Buckeyes winning the last meeting 26-17 in the 2010 Rose Bowl. OSU head coach Urban Meyer is 34-9 all time when his teams have more than a week to prepare for an opponent. After careful consideration, and not seeing either side blowing out the other, we are backing Ohio State with a 300 unit wager on the spread price posted on the betting board at the Bet365 online sportsbook.
