Brett McMurphy Previews the College Football National Championship
ESPN's Brett McMurphy joins Jeff Thurn on Monday's edtion of Overtime to talk about the first ever College Football National Championship tonight between Ohio State and Oregon.
To hear McMurphy and Thurn's conversation, listen below:
Who has more pressure in tonight's game - Ohio State or Oregon?
"I would say Oregon because they are the favorite and are expected to win. Ohio State comes in as a four seed and nobody gave them a shot against Alabama. They beat Alabama and are the prohibitive underdog today. So I think they (Ohio State) are loose. I was in New Orleans for the Sugar Bowl and happened to run into Urban Meyer a couple of hours before the game in New Orleans and he was real loose. So I think that translated to his team and I expect it be the same way. I expect both teams will have a little bit of the jitters because of the stage they are on and this is the first-ever college football title game. But I think usually in these type of situations, the underdog is is more loosey-goosey or free flowing if you will."
