Alabama in record 5th CFP title game vs 1st champ Ohio State

Alabama in record 5th CFP title game vs 1st champ Ohio State”

The team will play the victor of the other semifinal game between Clemson and Ohio State.

The Irish were trounced 30-3 by Clemson in the CFP semifinals in 2018 and, of course, were blown out 42-14 by Alabama in the BCS title game back in 2012.

There's a large variety of Alabama Rose Bowl champs gear, as well as merchandise on the Crimson Tide advancing to the CFP national championship game. "I don't know how many games we had to play to get here".

That semifinal was moved from Pasadena because of COVID-19 restrictions in California that would have kept family - or any fans - from attending the game. Alabama beat Michigan State 38-0 in the Cotton Bowl five seasons ago.

After 50 weeks - with a pandemic that sidelined coaches and countless players, wildly altered schedules and the most frustrating, draining and downright odd season any of us have ever witnessed - Bama and Clemson basically traded places on the totem pole. "That's really what mattered".

"It's a great team win", Saban told ESPN post-game. Their first game was the Sugar Bowl on January 2, 1978, a 35-6 Alabama win in a matchup of legendary coaches Bear Bryant and Woody Hayes.

Alabama gets a chance to win its sixth national title in coach Nick Saban's 14 seasons in the CFP national championship game. The early lines had the Tide favored by a touchdown over Ohio State.

That drive ended with a 12-yard touchdown passes to tight end Jahleel Billingsley.

"I'm sorry if you don't like it and if the national media doesn't like it but we're going to go back to work and we're going to put ourselves back in this position again", Kelly said.

DeVonta Smith caught three of fellow Heisman Trophy finalist Mac Jones' four touchdown passes in Alabama's win in the Rose Bowl played at the home of the NFL's Dallas Cowboys.

The Heisman Trophy will be presented in a virtual ceremony on Tuesday night.

"It's a blessing just to learn different things from everybody on this team", Smith said. "I mean, I'm looking forward to the next game".

And if Smith's 26-yard touchdown catch that capped off Alabama's first drive set a tone for the evening, the absurd 53-yard run by Najee Harris on the team's second drive served as a pretty apt metaphor for the talent discrepancy on the field. Smith finished with seven catches for 130 yards, including a toe-tapping 7-yarder in the front corner of the end zone in the third quarter. Jones has completed 77% of his passes (275 of 357) for 4,036 yards and 36 TDs. After catching two touchdown passes earlier in the game, Smith continued his dominance on Friday by catching another touchdown in the third quarter.

The quick-strike Alabama offense required just 7:08 of possession time to score touchdowns each of the first three times it had the ball. He has three consecutive 100-yard games. Not only will Fields have two of the Big Ten's most talented receivers in Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson to throw to, but the Buckeyes also have running back Trey Sermon who emerged in the Big Ten championship by rushing for 331 yards on 11.4 yards a carry against Northwestern.
