Clemson Rolls Tide To Win Natl Title

Clemson Rolls Tide To Win Natl Title

With stunning ease - and a freshman quarterback - Clemson toppled college football's greatest dynasty again to become the first ideal playoff champion.

The previous worst loss for a Saban-led Alabama team was by 14 points, which happened three times - the 2009 Sugar Bowl loss to Utah (31-17), the 2010 regular-season loss at SC (35-21), and the 2014 Sugar Bowl loss to Oklahoma (45-31).

Clemson made history Monday night by becoming the first 15-0 team in modern college football history. "We were never in that conversation". But tonight, there's no doubt.

"First, I want to thank the Clemson Family for the experience I've gained and the opportunity to play on this team for the past three years", Mullen posted on Twitter. Saban was trying for his seventh national title after winning one at LSU and five at Alabama since 2007.

Swinney's Tigers sealed their status as a superpower, no longer just 1A to Alabama's 1. Clemson wasn't ranked No. 1 at any point during the regular season.




Swinney, a former Alabama wide receiver, took over the Clemson program in 2008 and has taken the Tigers to the pinnacle of the college football world. But the results have been every bit as good. 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.

Clemson dominated on defense, stopping a fake field goal attempt from the Crimson Tide, while also keeping Nick Saban's squad scoreless in the second half.

He laid the blame on himself. And not so surprising, the 2019 season looks a lot like 2018.

"One game doesn't define who you are", Saban said.
