A day after the conclusion of the NFL’s Super Wild Card Weekend, all eyes shifted to the College Football Playoff National Championship between No. 1 Alabama and No. 3 Ohio State.
Led by an all-star cast of wide receiver DeVonta Smith, running back Najee Harris and quarterback Mac Jones, the Crimson Tide rolled to a 52-24 win over the Buckeyes and NFL players chimed in with their reactions.
Alabama won its sixth national title under coach Nick Saban (who won his record seventh overall) and its first since 2017, ending the year at 13-0 and sending the Buckeyes (7-1) to their first loss.
Unsurprisingly, much attention and praise was paid to ‘Bama Heisman Trophy winner DeVonta Smith, who exploded for 215 yards receiving and three touchdowns in the fist half before exiting in the second with a hand injury.
Alabama won in a rout, which was a fitting end for a team that won all but one game by double-digits this season.
And another ONE! #RollTide

DeVonta Smith is built different
DeVonta Smith is the TRUTH!
DeVonta Smith should be the #1 Overall Pick and he is back there returning punts. I love it. #Winner
If there’s one thing you can count on it’s Alabama replacing the most physical RB in the country with another physical RB who will probably win the Heisman in the future lol
