DALLAS (AP) – Ohio State and Oregon will meet in a game that has never been for a trophy that has never been raised.

The winner of Monday night’s matchup can be called the truest champion in the history of major college football.

The first College Football Playoff national championship game matches the second-seeded Ducks and fourth-seeded Buckeyes at AT&T Stadium.

The days of bowls, polls and the BCS having the final say about who is No. 1 in college are over.

Oregon and Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota are in search of the program’s first title.

Ohio State is looking for its fifth championship and first under coach Urban Meyer. In his third season with the Buckeyes, Meyer could become the second coach to win a national title with two schools.
