Alabama and Clemson cap off the season.

It’s here.

The national championship between Alabama and Clemson will cap off what has been yet another incredible college football season. The Crimson Tide beat Washington 24-7 in the semifinal shortly before the Tigers knocked off Ohio State 31-0.

It’s a rematch of last year’s championship, a thriller that Alabama hung on to win 45-40. Clemson star quarterback Deshaun Watson will be looking for revenge after coming up just short last year. The Crimson Tide are led by true freshman Jalen Hurts and monstrous running back Bo Scarbrough. It’s really the Alabama defense that is so dominant, though.
