It’s been an incredible year in the world of sports. Here’s a look back at the top 10 sports moments from 2015.
First College Football Playoff National Championship
After years of clamoring for an option better than the BCS, 2015 witnessed the first College Football Playoff National Championship game. Played by Ohio State and Oregon, the two teams defeated Alabama and Florida State, respectively, in semifinal games to win their way into the National Championship game on January 12th. With exciting storylines like a semifinal matchup between Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota, the 1st and 2nd overall picks in the 2015 NFL Draft, and an instant-classic upset by eventual champion (and 4th seed) Ohio State over 1st seed Alabama, the anticlimactic 42-20 drubbing of Oregon by Ohio State in the actual championship game couldn’t dull the success of the inaugural College Football Playoff.
