Photos: Ohio State knocks over cheerleader when running onto field

Tuesday January 13th, 2015

When Ohio State players ran onto the field for Monday night's College Football Playoff championship game against Oregon at AT&T Stadium, they were so focused on the task at hand that they knocked over a Buckeyes cheerleader.

Ohio State went down 7-0 when the Ducks scored a touchdown on their first possession, but the Buckeyes responded with 21 consecutive points to take an 11-point lead at halftime and held a 15-point lead midway through the fourth quarter.

Below are some photos from the incident.
