Check out the highlights of DeVonta Smith's Heisman campaign at Alabama. (1:55)

There once was a time when it seemed as though we would never get to this point, but the time has finally come to crown a national champion for the 2020 college football season.

The Alabama Crimson Tide and the Ohio State Buckeyes are loaded with talent on both sides of the ball, so we go to the Pro Football Focus data from grading every player on every play of every game to rank the top 25 stars in the College Football Playoff National Championship game. Nick Saban's squad comes out on top, with 15 of the top 25 players.

Note: This is not a projection of NFL talent or a future ranking. It's based on how good the players are right now heading into Monday night's game (8 p.m. ET, ESPN/ESPN App).
