As LeBron James and his Los Angeles Lakers tipped off against the San Antonio Spurs on Friday night, LeBron’s favorite college football team, the Ohio State Buckeyes from his home state, were playing in the second College Football Playoff semifinal against the Clemson Tigers. After LeBron handled his business against the Spurs, the Buckeyes finished their food as well, putting the final touches on a 49-28 trouncing of the Tigers and their head coach Dabo Swinney.

Following the Buckeyes victory that advances them to the National Championship game against the Alabama Crimson Tide on Jan. 11, LeBron James shared his praise for Buckeyes quarterback Justin Fields and also made sure to have some extra words for Swinney, who voted the Buckeyes 11th in the country.

Fields made a case for himself as the No. 1 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft after throwing for 385 yards and six touchdowns.

James even dabbled in some memes for the occasion.

Luckily for LeBron, he won’t have to work when the Buckeyes play in the National Championship game, but he will be back in the state of Texas, with the Lakers scheduled to play a set against the Houston Rockets on Jan. 10 and 12.
