Two previous national champions to compete in 2018 Allstate Sugar Bowl

Two previous national champions to compete in 2018 Allstate Sugar Bowl

After he suffered a knee injury in Alabama's 26-14 Iron Bowl loss to Auburn, Crimson Tide senior safety Hootie Jones will be out for the Sugar Bowl against Clemson, coach Nick Saban revealed Sunday afternoon.

On Saturday, the Tigers dominated Miami 38-3 in the ACC Championship game to earn their third straight conference title, finishing the season with a 12-1 record. The Tide defeated the Tigers in the National Championship at the end of the 2015 season in Phoenix, AZ, while the Tigers defeated the Tide a year ago 35-31 in Tampa, FL. "I mean, you never know what they're going to do and lots of people said Ohio State would be there and now that Alabama has showed up, it's a big relief", King said. "In the other playoff games we've played in since then, there's been a bit more focus and understanding of the consequences".

All that stands between the Tigers and a shot at the national championship is four quarters of football, which Swinney understands will be the most hard four quarters of the year.

Ohio State claimed a Big Ten title on Saturday night, taking down previously-fourth-ranked Wisconsin - which was the last undefeated Power 5-conference team - to give it two victories over teams ranked in the Top 5.

Not that Clemson is a piece of cake to stop with first-year starting quarterback Kelly Bryant, but Alabama may actually have a chance to hold the Tigers under 500 yards total offense now than DeShaun Watson moved on to the NFL's Houston Texans. But coach Nick Saban says he expects his defense to be close to full strength by the time the Crimson Tide faces the Tigers on January 1.




But don't call Clemson the defending national champion. "We're attacking for another one", Swinney said. That's been our mindset all year.

"I don't know if it had any impact on anybody on the committee, but I did want to at least put our case out there in terms of our whole body of work, what we'd one all year long, trying to get the first best teams in there, and I think it worked out that way". "It's not exactly like we'd like for it to be and we feel very fortunate that we have the opportunity to be in the game".

Meanwhile, Hundley and the rest of the Sugar Bowl folks are on a high.

Clemson (No. 1) will face Alabama (No. 4) in the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans, LA on New Year's Day at 8:45 p.m. ET.

"Early indication are our tickets are going to be a hot commodity", Hundley said.
