ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Alabama is in the College Football Playoff championship game for a record fifth time.

The 12-0 Crimson Tide will play Ohio State, which won the inaugural title in the CFP’s four-team format at the end of the 2014 season.

This is the first time the Buckeyes have gotten back to the CFP title game. Alabama advanced with a win over Notre Dame in the relocated Rose Bowl. No. 3 Ohio State beat Clemson in the Sugar Bowl. The Tide and Buckeyes meet January 11 in suburban Miami. Both are undefeated.
