The season-long head-to-head matchup between the Ducks and Buckeyes has been like a great basketball game: lots of lead changes. They started the season #s 3 & 5, ended it 2 & 3, and never left the top 10 in-between. But what is most noticeable are the 9 (!) lead changes in the 17 weeks we ranked them, including going into and coming out of the semifinals. Next to Alabama at #1, these two teams were constants for us, and there are no two whose rankings have been more intertwined. Appropriate then that we see the game as, practically, a toss-up.
