The Tide and Tigers duke it out for all the marbles.
No. 1 Alabama plays No. 2 Clemson in a national title game rematch on Monday at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium.
It’s the final of the College Football Playoff and follows Alabama’s 45-40 triumph over the Tigers in Arizona a year ago. WatchESPN has all the live online streams starting at 8 p.m. ET, including ESPN’s alternate telecasts that are online-only and on the SEC Network. The Crimson Tide are seeking an outrageous fifth national title in eight seasons, while the Tigers want to win their second title all-time and the first since 1981. Bama got here by way of a 24-7 Peach Bowl semifinal win against Washington, while Clemson won, 31-0, against Ohio State at the Fiesta Bowl. Both looked dominant. Alabama is the clear favorite here, for no other reason than Alabama is Alabama. The Tide are the obvious best team in the country, at 14-0 and only really challenged once or twice all season. They’ve devoured everything in their path. Clemson’s road has been more arduous, with no fewer than five narrow escapes en route to a 13-1 record: against Auburn, Troy, Louisville, NC State, and Florida State. But they’ve won all the same, and they’ve earned the right to take on the Tide with everything at stake. Clemson, from its attempt a year ago, knows it can at least compete with Alabama. The Tigers should have some kind of chance to win, and that’s the best you can hope for when you’re going up against a practically unprecedented juggernaut. If they play their cards right, Dabo Swinney’s players could have a lot more than a chance. t’ll be Tigers-Tide, round two as Clemson and Alabama tangle in the College Football Championship for the second season in a row. Both sides of the College Football Playoff played true to the seedings, as No. 1 Alabama dropped No. 4 Washington 24-7, while No. 2 Clemson blanked No. 3 Ohio State, 31-0.
