Last night the Oregon Ducks and the Ohio State Buckeyes faced off in the 2015 College Football Playoff National Championship. Ohio State came out on top 42-20, as Buckeye Nation (including LeBron James) stood victorious on top of the college football mountaintop.

Behind the scenes, college football fans took to social media expressing their team spirit in various ways, but last night I came across a unique post that immediately caught my eye. The championship matchup captured in two simple yet rare items, courtesy of Sole Collector's former Editor-in-Chief Nick DePaula's Instagram page.

So, after Oregon was defeated by OSU, this morning in my daily art exercise I decided to transform this impressive image (with one of my favorite signature LeBrons to date as inspiration) into something that would reflect the outcome of the game. Enjoy!
