CINCINNATI (AP) - Ohio State’s national football championship means a big win totaling nearly $1.5 million for hundreds of furniture buyers in Ohio and Kentucky.

Morris Furniture Co. Inc. in suburban Dayton ran a promotion at 15 Morris Home Furnishings and Ashley Furniture HomeStores in Columbus, Dayton and Cincinnati in Ohio and in Florence, Kentucky. It offered refunds to customers buying at least $1,999 in furniture, mattresses and accessories from Dec. 17 to Jan. 1 if Ohio State defeated the University of Oregon by at least 7 points.

The Buckeyes won 42-20 on Monday night.

Morris Furniture spokesman Rob Klaben (KLAY’-ben) says a company that underwrites such promotions provides Morris with the refund money for a percentage of the sales. Klaben says about 500 shoppers should qualify for the refunds.
