As I have promoted here on MLonML, I consider myself both a law student and a journalist. I was able to wear my journalist hat Thursday night as I covered the Sugar Bowl/College Football Playoff semifinal for SportsNola.com. Since I am typically busy with law school, I have been unable to use my journalism skills as often as I would like, but I have been fortunate to have covered the past three Sugar Bowls.
I was treated to a gem as nine-point underdog Ohio State defied the odds as it has done all season to defeat No. 1 Alabama in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Using third-string quarterback Cardale Jones and a heavy dose of the running game from running back Ezekiel Elliott, the Buckeyes overcame a 15-point deficit to defeat the Crimson Tide. Here is my article from SportsNola.com: Underdog Ohio State runs over Alabama to win Allstate Sugar Bowl, advances to College Football Playoff National Championship.
