In a relative shocker, Clemson defeated the Crimson Tide of Alabama 44-16 in the College Football National Championship game Monday night. Alabama’s defense just couldn’t keep Trevor Lawrence and the Tigers receivers out of the end zone. It was beautiful catch after beautiful catch as Lawrence led the Tigers on an array of touchdown drives dissecting the fearsome Bama defense. Things got so bad that early in the 3rd quarter, Coach Nick Saban decided to run a fake field goal on 4th and 6 at the Clemson 22. After getting stopped, it only took 3 plays for Clemson to reach the end zone again and the rout was on. Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa could not get anything done all game long against the fearsome pass rush of the Tigers. Congratulations to the Clemson Tigers and freshman QB Trevor Lawrence who looks to go back to back next year, because tonight was a virtuoso performance.
