LeBron James and John Legend will get you hyped up for Monday, Ohio State football fans.
LeBron James and John Legend’s favorite college football team will be playing for a national title on Monday night, so you better believe these A-listers are just as excited as the rest of the Ohio State football fans out there.
James and Legend lent their voices to narrate this incredible hype video ahead of the Ohio State Buckeyes’ appearance in the 2021 National Championship game. Ohio State will face the No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida on Monday night. The Buckeyes are more than a touchdown underdog to Alabama in this neutral-site affair.

What do the Buckeyes have to do to upset the Crimson Tide?
Ohio State is already coming off its most impressive win of the Ryan Day era last week. The Buckeyes shocked the No. 2 Clemson Tigers in the Sugar Bowl to advance to the national title bout. Though it was a huge victory, it was a costly one. Starting quarterback Justin Fields sustained a crushing blow from Clemson linebacker James Skalski and hurt his ribs in the process.
Fields will have had 10 days to recover from Skalski’s hit, but he is not likely to be at 100 percent when toe meets the rubber on Monday night. Regardless, he must play the game of his life to beat the juggernaut Crimson Tide. Even if he plays up to this lofty standard, Fields will need all of his teammates to play perfect football to hold the Tide at bay. They will have no margin for error.
Perhaps James, Legend and the rest of Buckeye Nation can propel Ohio State to victory?
