(2) Arizona Handles (10) Ohio St., Advances to Third-Straight Sweet 16

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(PORTLAND, Ore.) -- Senior point guard T.J. McConnell filled the stat sheet with 19 points, six rebounds, six assists, and five steals to help lead No. 2 Arizona past No. 10 Ohio State, 73-58, in the third round of the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament Saturday.

The Wildcats (33-3) were only up by one at halftime, but Gabe York scored 16 of his 19 points in the second half helping send Arizona to its third-straight Sweet 16.

Ohio State super freshman D'Angelo Russell couldn't get his shot going against the Wildcats' defense. Russell finished the game shooting 3 of 19 from the field, the most missed shots of his college career.

Sam Thompson had a team-high 18 points for the Buckeyes (24-11) in the loss.

Arizona advances to take on No. 6 Xavier Thursday in Los Angeles.

Russell Leads (10) Ohio St. Past (7) VCU in OT

Getty_Ohio_State_Mascot.jpg(PORTLAND, Ore.) -- Freshman guard D'Angelo Russell had 28 points, six rebounds, two steals, and two blocks to help No. 10 Ohio State eliminate No. 7 VCU 75-72 in overtime in their second-round NCAA Tournament game Thursday.

Russell made 50 percent of his shots and went 4 of 7 from 3-point distance, leading Ohio State (24-10) to their first tournament win since 2013.

The victory did not come easily for the Buckeyes. They fell behind by 12 in the first half before battling back to make it a one-point game at halftime. From that point on, there were nine lead-changes before the Buckeyes improved their NCAA Tournament record under head coach Thad Matta to 18-8.

Jae'Sean Tate had 12 points and eight boards while guard Shannon Scott dished out 10 assists in the victory.

Melvin Johnson scored 17 points for VCU (26-10) who is going home in their tournament opener for the second straight season.

QB Cardale Jones Staying at Ohio State

IStockPhoto/ Thinkstock(COLUMBUS, Ohio) -- Buckeyes quarterback Cardale Jones says he will remain at Ohio State and not make himself available for this year’s NFL draft. He made the announcement at his former high school in Cleveland on Thursday.

“It’s everybody’s dream and go, when they play football or any other collegiate sports, to make it to the next level,” Jones said. “In my point of my career, I feel like it’s best for me to go back to school and one of the most important things for me to do is graduate.”

Jones began the season as the third-string quarterback for Ohio State, but season-ending injuries to Braxton Miller and backup J.T. Barrett thrust him into the starting role.

In three starts, he went 3-0, leading the Buckeyes to a 42-20 win over Oregon in the national championship game. The third-year sophomore passed for 242 yards and a touchdown and ran for another against the Ducks.

Ohio State Wins National Championship

Kirk Irwin/Getty Images(ARLINGTON, Tx.) -- The Ohio State Buckeyes are the national champions of college football.

With a 42-20 victory over the Oregon Ducks on Monday, Urban Meyer's team completed their Cinderella run.

In the inaugural college football playoff, few expected the No. 40-seeded Buckeyes to contend -- they didn't make the playoff until the final week of the season with a 59-0 demolition of the Wisconsin Badgers.  After the win, they took the place of TCU.

Perhaps even more impressive was their final three games, in which they had to rely on a third-string sophomore at quarterback in Cardale Jones. He was efficient against the Ducks, completing 16 of 23 passes for 242 yards and one touchdown. Jones also plunged in from one yard out to give the Buckeyes a 21-7 lead in the second quarter. 

Running back Ezekiel Elliot brought his lunch pail and an extra hard hat to the game: he carried the ball 36 times for 246 yards and four touchdowns as he carved through the Ducks' defense.

The Oregon Ducks' Heisman-winning quarterback Marcus Mariota tried valiantly to keep his team in the game as he racked up 333 yards passing and two touchdowns, but it wasn't enough to contend with the brute force of Ohio State.

This is Ohio State's eighth national championship, and first since 2002.

Elliott Runs Ohio State Past Alabama and into the National Title Game

Chris Graythen/Getty Images(NEW ORLEANS) -- Ezekiel Elliott rushed for a Sugar Bowl-Record 230 yards and three touchdowns to help No. 4 Ohio State upset top-ranked Alabama 42-35 Thursday, to advance to the National Title game.

"He's probably the most underrated back in the United States," Coach Urban Meyer said of Elliott.

Alabama (12-2) took an 21-6 lead early in the second quarter when T.J. Yeldon ran for a two-yard touchdown. But Ohio State never lost its composure, scoring two touchdowns in the final three minutes of the quarter and headed into halftime down one.

The Buckeyes started off the second half the way they ended the first with Cardale Jones connecting with Devin Smith on a 47-yard touchdown bomb to take the lead.

Ohio State looked like it finished off the game when Elliott dashed for an 85-yard touchdown run with 3:24 to play. But Alabama answered right back when Blake Sims connected with Amari Cooper on a six-yard touchdown making the score 42-35 with 1:59 to go. The Crimson Tide defense then proceeded to force the Buckeyes into a three-and-out to get the ball back with 1:33 remaining. But their hope for victory was dashed when Tyvis Powell intercepted Sims' pass with time expiring to seal the game.

"I'm proud of this team," Alabama head coach Nick Saban said. "They excelled all year long and kept Alabama at the forefront of college football."

Ohio State (13-1) will now take on No. 2 Oregon (13-1) on Jan. 12 for the National Championship.

College Football Playoff Set

Football Texture/iStockphoto(NEW YORK) -- The inaugural College Football Playoff is set after the committee announced their final four on Sunday.

The Alabama Crimson Tide got the top seed and will take on the fourth-seeded Ohio State Buckeyes.  In the other bracket, second-seeded Oregon will take on third-seeded Florida State.  Both games are on New Year's Day.

The latest rankings knocked the TCU Horned Frogs out of playoff contention even after their 55-3 win over Iowa State on Saturday.

Alabama will play Ohio State in the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans.  The Ducks get Florida State in the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.

The final playoff rankings had Baylor at number five, ahead of TCU.

Ohio State Routs Wisconsin, 59-0, for Big Ten Title

Kirk Irwin/Getty Images(INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.) -- As if the inaugural College Football Playoff didn't need any more potential controversy, fifth-ranked Ohio State throttled number 13 Wisconsin 59-0 in the Big Ten title game on Saturday, only adding to the list of teams vying for a top-four spot. 

I don't think there's any doubt we're one of the top four teams in America," said coach Urban Meyer, who has led the Buckeyes (10-3) to 11 consecutive wins, nine of which have been by double digits.

Third-string quarterback Cardale Jones, starting his first-ever college game, showed no jitters and threw for 257 yards and three touchdowns in the blowout. Jones also earned MVP honors, helping Ohio State put up 38 points in the first half alone. Running back Ezekiel Elliott had a strong contribution to the championship, racking up 220 yards on the ground and scoring twice.

What may have been most impressive was the play of the Buckeyes defense. Wisconsin (10-3) running back, and Heisman hopeful, Melvin Gordon was held to just 76 yards on 26 carries and no touchdowns. It was the second-lowest rushing total this year for the nation's top back.

It was the first shutout loss for the Badgers since 1997, and worst since a 59-0 defeat by Ohio State in 1979. Meanwhile, the win was Ohio State's largest over a ranked team in school history.
