Students and fans of Clemson University celebrate championship

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.

The Tigers became the first major college football team to go 15-0 for the season since 1897.

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

From there, though, he did get into explaining the basis of four-touchdowns confidence: "First and foremost, you don't make it about Alabama", said the 49-year-old native Alabamian who played walk-on receiver for Alabama.


Overall, the New Year's Six games, including the Cotton and Orange bowl semifinals, averaged a 9.0 overnight rating, which is up 8 percent from the second year of the playoff when the semifinals were held in the Cotton and Orange bowls on New Year's Eve.

The Tigers head coach was obviously thrilled during his postgame interview, after his football team captured a second championship in three seasons, and a second time as the underdog, TigerNet noted. Clemson wasn't ranked No. 1 at any point during the regular season.

Coaches and fans have long awaited the fall of the Saban dynasty in Tuscaloosa, and many were happy to see Clemson's rout of Alabama. The two teams opened as the favorites to win the national championship in 2019, and are likely on a collision course for a fifth straight meeting in next year's playoff.

It's now Alabama, Clemson, and the rest of ya'll.
