The Inaugural Gala for Ohio's governor, John Kasich, is the same evening as the 2015 College Football Playoff national championship game - Monday, Jan. 12.
That could be a problem for the Buckeye State.
If No. 4 Ohio State beats No. 1 Alabama in the Sugar Bowl Jan. 1, Urban Meyer's squad will be playing in that national championship game. What proud citizen of Ohio would attend a gala for their governor when their favorite college football team is playing for a title?
Governor Kasich understands this, which is why he's made a bit of an adjustment to his plans for the gala.

That's probably why you voted for him, Ohioans.
Ohio State and Alabama are set to kick off at 8:30 p.m. E.T. Jan. 1. The game will be televised on ESPN.
