2021 is starting out pretty rough.

The scheduled Jan. 11 date of the 2021 college football national championship game is now in jeopardy o fbeing pushed back because of COVID-19 issues at Ohio State.

John Talty and Matt Zenitz of AL.com reported Ohio State could be without a position group for the game.

“There are concerns related to Ohio State’s player availability for the game, according to sources, setting up a massive decision less than a week from when the game is scheduled to kick off in Miami. Ohio State has informed key parties involved it could be without a position group due to COVID-19 testing and related protocols.

There have been discussions amongst the SEC, Big Ten, the College Football Playoff and the schools related to possibly postponing the Jan. 11 title game, sources said, though a final decision on the situation has yet to be reached. The CFP has already established Jan. 18 in Hard Rock Stadium as the makeup date should the title game have to be postponed.”

The College Football Playoff admitted before bowl season that pushing the games back was a possibility if teams had issues.
