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

Clemson Rolls Tide To Win Natl Title

Alabama has been the preeminent dynasty in college football over the last decade.

Clemson seized an early lead over Alabama in the 2019 College Football Playoff national championship game, thanks to an interception by sophomore defensive back A.J. Terrell returned for a touchdown.

The same can not be said for Alabama in the SEC, with the Georgia Bulldogs the third choice to win it all at +550 followed by the Auburn Tigers (+2500), LSU Tigers (+3000) and Florida Gators (+4000). The only problem for Alabama is the team that shellacked them Monday night likely will be there waiting for them. In the past four years, that gives Clemson two national titles and Alabama two national titles. Justyn Ross caught six balls for 153 yards and a score for Clemson, which shut out 'Bama after leading 31-16 at the half.

The bully became the bullied on Monday night, but it would be foolish to pen an obituary for the Crimson Tide with a ton of talented players returning to Tuscaloosa next season as well as the nation's No. 1 ranked recruiting class. Ivy League rivals Yale (1894) and Penn (1897) were the last teams to win 15 games in a season.

Alabama will be back, but Clemson will nearly certainly be there waiting for them.

"What a great win over Clemson for the Crimson Tide".

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

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.
