Ohio State and Alabama are both undefeated this season and each team is looking to add a trophy to its national championship collection. The Buckeyes won the inaugural College Football Playoff title following the 2014 season and the Crimson Tide have claimed two titles in the four-team format.
The last time Alabama and Ohio State met was in the semifinal round of the 2014 College Football Playoff in the Sugar Bowl. The Buckeyes defeated the Tide 42-35 to face Oregon in the title game that year.
Kickoff between Ohio State and Alabama is set for 8 p.m. ET on ESPN.
