After taking a backseat to the SEC Champion Alabama Rolling Tide all year, the ACC’s Clemson Tigers got their revenge Monday night with a resounding blowout victory over the Tide. They Rolled the Tide. Last year’s hero, Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa was intercepted twice and kept under control by a dominating Clemson defense as Alabama tasted defeat for the first time this year 44-16. This is Clemson’s second title in four years. Current Houston Texan QB DeShawn Watson led the Tigers to a Championship over Alabama a couple years ago. After a close first 15 minutes, Clemson dominated the last three quarters of the game for an easy victory.
Clemson is the betting favorite to repeat as Champions next year, followed by (2)Alabama, (3)Georgia and (4)Ohio State. Ohio State welcomes a new Head Coach and starting QB next year. Should be interesting.
