Clemson intercepts Tua Tagovailoa twice in first half of action-packed championship

Clemson Rolls Tide To Win Natl Title

It wouldn't be the last big play surrendered by the Crimson Tide.

Clemson won 44-16, the largest margin of victory in a college football championship game since Alabama beat Notre Dame by 28 in the 2012 BCS title game.

With Clemson and Alabama the obvious favorites in 2019, which teams have the best shot at dethroning the Tide and Tigers to summit the college football mountain?

Etienne had three first-half TDs for Clemson, which actually trailed 16-14 in the second quarter before forging a 31-16 advantage by halftime.

Clemson Rolls Tide To Win Natl Title

Ross, an Alabama native who spurned his home state school for Clemson, made several outstanding and timely grabs.

"Congratulations to a truly great football team, the Clemson Tigers, on an incredible win last night against a powerful Alabama team", he wrote. He finished with 86 yards on 14 carries. And with Alabama hoping for any sort of momentum swing, All-American defensive end Clelin Ferrell stopped Tagovailoa for a 7-yard loss on fourth down near the goal line.

The former Crimson Tide QB is no stranger to success on the field. The Heisman contender gave Alabama an explosive passing game the program has lacked under Nick Saban, completing 69.5 percent of his passes for 3,671 yards, 41 touchdowns and four interceptions. He was named the offensive player of the game.

Clemson returns quarterback Trevor Lawrence, running back Travis Ettiene and receivesr Justyn Ross and Tee Higgins among others.
