What's The Connection Between Ohio State's Win And Free Ashley Furniture?

Will the chain store known for affordable furniture uphold its promise?

Buckeye fans aren't the only ones celebrating the Ohio State's win.

The Ohio State Buckeyes CRUSHED favorite Oregon, 42-20, on Monday to win the national college football championship.

Ducks fans aren't the only ones weeping - there might be some furniture executives shedding tears this morning too. That's because a popular chain store selling furniture made a sure-to-win bet and lost big. 

This was the deal: Buy at least $2,000 of furniture during the month of December, and if Ohio State wins the national championship by 7 points or more, the furniture is free.

More than 500 customers made purchases totaling $1.5 million. We're guessing some bandwagon fans were sitting (or sleeping) pretty last night! 

Congrats Buckeyes and furniture winners. Now let's check if there are any similar promotions for the Super Bowl...everyone needs a new recliner for sports watching!
