The 2007 Tostitos BCS National Championship Game was an American football game played at the University of Phoenix Stadiumin Glendale, Arizona, on January 8, 2007. It was the first time that the BCS had staged its own standalone national title game (previously the member bowls each took turns serving as the title game). The No. 1 Ohio State Buckeyes lost to the BCS No. 2 Florida Gators, 41–14. The Buckeyes secured a spot by finishing the regular season undefeated and ranked No. 1 in the BCS. It was the first time the Buckeyes and Gators had ever met on the football field. The 12–1 Florida Gators earned a spot after defeating Arkansas in the Southeastern Conference Championship Game in early December, and jumping from No. 4 to No. 2 in the final BCS Rankings, passing No. 3 Michigan and previous No. 2 USC.
The game was the first BCS National Championship Game to be televised on the FOX network.
