ARLINGTON, Texas — During the National Championship game Monday night, Oregon wasn’t the only thing that Ohio State was running over. As the team raced onto the field of AT&T Stadium, the Buckeyes made an entrance that will be talked about for quite a while.

One of the flags that spelled out O-H-I-O was snagged on the ground and pulled down the cheerleader that was carrying it, preventing her from taking the field and in the way of a herd of pumped up football players.

Upon falling, the cheerleader quickly tried to get up, but one of the players tripped over her, causing other players to do the same.

It wasn’t until one of her fellow male cheerleaders came back to help pull her away from the team’s tunnel that she was freed from the chaos.

The cheerleader’s fall caused quite the buzz among fans who were wondering why the team’s cheerleaders misspelled the four letter state.
