Game Program from the 2015 Sugar Bowl and Two Miniature 2014 National Championship Replica Trophies. On New Years Day in 2015, a fourth seeded Ohio State team upset top seeded Alabama in the first every College Football Playoff. Running back Ezekiel Elliott ripped off 230 yards and two touchdowns. It was his 85-yard run "Through the Heart of the South" that clinched the victory for the Buckeyes as they'd move on to the National Championship game with a 42-35 win over the Crimson Tide. The replica trophies were made to look like the trophy that Urban Meyer hoisted after claiming the school's eighth National Championship by beating Oregon in the inaugural College Football Playoff.
