WE DID IT AGAIN! The Clemson Tigers are CHAMPIONS AGAIN!!!
Clemson is back atop the college football world for the second time in three years behind a new cast of characters after dominating the Crimson Tide 44-16 Monday night at Levi’s Stadium.
The Tigers are the first 15-0 in college football history. They controlled the game and were never challenged in the second half on the way to their third football national title in school history.
“I felt like we had the better team. I felt like our leadership, our will to win, I could just sense it,” Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said. “Our guys made plays. We came in with the mindset that we were going to attack and we did the whole night.”
Freshman quarterback Trevor Lawrence passed for 347 yards and three touchdowns in the blowout victory, finding his favorite target on the evening Justyn Ross six times for 153 yards and a score.
Lawrence and Ross put on a show in the third quarter as Lawrence made big time throw after big time throw to the Alabama native Ross, who hauled in circus catches with defenders draped all over him.
Ross had four catches for 129 yards in the third quarter alone, including a pair of one-handed catches for big gains.
Any national championship win is special, but what Clemson did on Monday night in Santa Clara was emphatic.
The Tigers dominated Alabama in all facets, winning by a final score of 44-16. Trevor Lawrence was magnificent all night long, finishing 20-for-32 for 347 yards and three touchdowns. Clemson’s national championship win was Dabo Swinney’s second at the school, and the Tigers’ second win over Alabama in four years.
Clemson is on top of the college football world again after defeating Alabama 44-16 in the
#CFPChampionship. The Tigers are the first team in the modern era to finish the season 15-0.
This being my ALMA MATER, I am ECSTATIC right now! CONGRATS to my CLEMSON TIGERS!!!
