Ohio State beat Oregon 42-20 to win the first College Football Playoff national championship game on Monday, with Ezekiel Elliott running for 246 yards and four touchdowns.

American football’s inaugural four-team college playoff came to a surprising conclusion as the Buckeyes, a controversial choice as the fourth team, topped the heavily favored Ducks to cap a banner season of overcoming obstacles.

Third-string quarterback Cardale Jones was again thrust into the spotlight after injuries to the team’s top signal callers, and he shook off his team’s four turnovers to throw for 242 yards with one passing score and another on the ground.

Jones stood toe to toe with Oregon’s Heisman Trophy winning quarterback, Marcus Mariota, who tossed for 333 yards and two touchdowns in the defeat.

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer delivered the national title to the Buckeyes after taking over the program in 2012, and won his third overall following titles with Florida in 2006 in 2008.
