Ohio State Football 2021 Live: The 2020-21 college football national championship will be held on Monday night. Here’s everything you need to know to watch the College Football Playoff championship, the final game of the 2020 college football season.
The 2020-21 college football national championship will be held on Monday night with the Ohio State Buckeyes and the Alabama Crimson Tide. If you have recently cut cable and are looking for a way to watch the national championship, look no further we have you all squared away on how to watch the college football national championship without cable.
It’s only fitting that, in this upside season affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Rose Bowl champion Crimson Tide and Sugar Bowl champion Buckeyes should meet in Miami to decides the sport’s national champion. Apart from the peculiarities of Monday’s meeting, however, there are plenty of storylines to watch in the final game of the year.
First and foremost is the reported COVID-19 outbreak in Ohio State’s locker room. The Buckeyes were already without 16 players in their Sugar Bowl romp over the Tigers, but it’s uncertain how many — if any — players must miss the game against Alabama. That’s assuming, of course, the game isn’t postponed to a later date.

Otherwise, it seems as if the big question regarding Monday’s national title game is which of the two offenses can outperform the other. Justin Fields is sporting what appears to be bruised ribs, at least, from a targeting hit by Clemson linebacker James Skalski. The advent of Trey Sermon, who has a combined 589 yards from scrimmage in his last two outings, certainly helps the Buckeyes’ title game hopes.
Then there’s Alabama, whose offense features a potent triumvirate of quarterback Mac Jones, receiver DeVonta Smith and running back Najee Harris. That combo is fearsome enough as is, but there are rumors receiver Jaylen Waddle, who broke his ankle in the Tennessee game, can return to play as well.
With that, here’s everything you need to watch Alabama vs. Ohio State in the College Football Playoff championship game, including TV channel, kickoff time, location and updated betting odds.
