COLUMBUS (NEXSTAR) — Ohio State’s bid for a national championship will go through the desert while no. 1 LSU will play for the Peach Bowl in a familiar Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

The Buckeyes were knocked from the top spot in the College Football Playoff rankings Sunday after surviving their first big scare of the season, coming back from a 21-7 halftime deficit against the no. 8 Wisconsin Badgers.

The now no. 2 ranked Buckeyes will face No. 3 Clemson in the Fiesta Bowl in Phoenix on Dec. 28. The no. 1 LSU Tigers will take on no. 4 Oklahoma in the Peach Bowl.

Let’s see how each team fared during championship weekend:
