There’s a ton of paths for Ohio State to take down Alabama tonight in the National Championship but Trevor Matich of ESPN thinks that the biggest one will be their chemistry.

Matich was on ESPN with Nicole Briscoe on Monday afternoon and explained in more detail here:

“It’s about chemistry and rhythm. They hadn’t put together a complete performance all year in-part because they had only six games to play and a lot of guys missed some of those. But against Clemson, everything clicked.”

He then went into even more detail when talking about how that could carry over into tonight’s game:

“This is chemistry and rhythm on both sides of the ball that allowed them to hoist that Sugar Bowl trophy. And if they carry it forward to the Alabama game, they’re talented enough to pull the upset and hoist the National Championship trophy.”

Kickoff for the game will be at 8 p.m. ET and we’ll have to see if the Buckeyes can carry over their A-game to tonight.
