Tigers topple No. 1 'Bama 44-16 for national title

Tigers topple No. 1 'Bama 44-16 for national title”

The Clemson Tigers completed the first 15-0 campaign in FBS history on Monday night with a 44-16 shellacking of the Alabama Crimson Tide (14-1) as five-point underdogs in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game. Etienne scored a school-record 26 touchdowns and rushed for 1,658 yards as a sophomore while the 6-foot-4, 205-pound Ross had six catches for 153 yards with one touchdown versus the Tide to finish with 1,000 yards as a freshman. "We were never in that conversation, but tonight there's no doubt". The 2016 national championship game between Alabama and Clemson that was decided on a last-second touchdown drew 25.3 million viewers. Heisman Trophy runner-up Tua Tagovailoa threw a second interception and was 22 of 34 for 295 yards with two first-quarter TDs, along with minus-9 yards rushing.

Tagovailoa, the sophomore who came off the bench to win the championship game a year ago for the Tide, went 22 for 34 for 295 yards and two touchdowns. During the 1985-1986 season, Holieway took over as starting quarterback after Troy Aikman's leg was broken.

It's pretty rare to see a Saban-coached team get manhandled.

The Tigers finished No. 1 in the final Associated Press poll with Alabama No. 2, Ohio State third and Georgia fourth. "Deshaun Watson started it by winning a national championship here". I am ready to move on to the next chapter in my life.
