Ohio State is in the inaugural College Football Playoff, it was announced Sunday, and several Buckeyes players tweeted their reaction to the news.

Ohio State, the No. 4 seed, will face No. 1 Alabama, the SEC champ, in the Sugar Bowl.

The winner of that game will face the victor of the Rose Bowl between No. 2 Oregon, the Pac-12 champ, and No. 3 Florida State, the ACC champ.

The Buckeyes, as one would one expect, were pumped to hear their favorable playoff fate.
