ARLINGTON, Texas — Ohio State’s entrance to the College Football Playoff National Championship did not go exactly as planned.

The bearer of the last “O” flag in “O-H-I-O” got tangled up with several players coming out of the tunnel and the flag didn’t make it with the rest of the letters.

Consequently, Ohio State was led out of the player’s tunnel with the letters “O-H-I” while the final “O” was being rolled up on the end line.

Luckily, it appeared no one was injured. The gaffe wasn't a bad omen for the Ohio State football team, which dominated Oregon in a 42-20 victory for the national title.
