Obama calls Urban Meyer to congratulate Ohio State on championship

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama called Urban Meyer to congratulate the Ohio State head coach on his team’s 42-20 upset victory over Oregon the first College Football Playoff championship.

During Tuesday night’s call with Meyer, Obama discussed “the underclassmen who stepped up in the game despite injury and adversity,” the White House said in a statement.

Obama was looking forward to having the team to the White House to celebrate the championship, the statement said.

Ohio State’s victory on Monday night on ESPN drew the highest ratings and viewership in the history of U.S. cable television.

The 50-year-old Meyer has won three national titles, having previously won two as the head football coach at Florida.
