New York City is a hotbed for sports fans from all around the country. Walk through the city’s five boroughs and you’ll be hard-pressed not to find at least one bar aligned with the school or team for which you root.

Fitting then it is that a New York City landmark will give a nod to the winner of Monday night’s College Football Playoff National Championship Game.

Will the New York skyline have a scarlet and grey tinge or be glowing with green and yellow?

It will surely be one of many tributes to come to whoever is crowned college football’s champion.
