A few weeks ago, Notre Dame and Ohio State were in the top four. These two powerhouses came short of their championship dreams, but this is a pretty good consolation prize. The Ohio State Buckeyes were picked to win back to back championships by everyone. The amount of NFL talent on this team is unbelievable. Notre Dame had an emotional season full of injury. They were two plays away from being in the Final Four. This Irish squad is also full of NFL talent. The x-factor in this game is if both teams will be focused on the game and not their professional future. I believe because of the name brands these two teams are they will both be focused. Ezekiel Elliott will get things going and the Buckeyes will come out on top.
Prediction: Ohio State 40, Notre Dame 35
