Clemson wins 2nd National Championship in three years vs Alabama, 44-16

Adjust Comment Print

Saban and the Tide will try to regroup in the offseason and more likely than not will find themselves right back in the College Football Playoffs and perhaps the National Championship Game.

The Clemson Tigers official account also could not resist a dig at the singer as it became clear they were heading for their second national championship in three years.

Clemson is the new king of college football after a 44-16 win over defending champion Alabama in the National Championship Game at Levis Stadium.

The two teams exchanged blows early with Clemson holding a 14-13 lead after the first quarter, but it was all Tigers after that.

Now Swinney's Tigers seem to have fully caught up to Saban's Tide, proving that Alabama isn't invincible.

I sure hope everyone understands why Dabo Swinney replaced Kelly Bryant with true freshman quarterback Trevor Lawrence after four games of the season. "There was a lot of talk about best ever, all year long".

Clemson receiver, Justyn Ross, had six receptions, 153 yards, and a touchdown. Clemson wasn't ranked No. 1 at any point during the regular season.

The former Crimson Tide QB is no stranger to success on the field.

The College Football Playoff pivoted away from its original plan to play semifinal games on New Year's Eve, moving several sets of games off weeknights to Saturdays instead.

Coach Nick Saban has led Alabama to five championships since he took over the program before 2007.
