National Championship Game

Clemson has not won the top prize in college football since 1981, the only officially recognized NCAA national championship in the school’s history. Alabama, on the other hand, is recognized by the NCAA as 12-time national champs, though the school itself claims 15 titles, dating back to an era when various organizations recognized differing champions.

The Crimson Tide most recently took back-to-back national championships under head coach Nick Saban in 2011 and 2012.

The all-time series between Alabama and Clemson dates back to 1900, with the two schools facing each other 15 times in the past 116 years. Alabama has dominated the rivalry, winning 12 times – the last 12 straight since 1909 – to just three for the Clemson Tigers, who have not defeated the Crimson Tide since 1905.

But the early 1970s saw a new era for southern college football, and for Alabama and Clemson – desegregation. Until 1970 for Clemson and 1971 for Alabama, neither team had ever included African-American players on their rosters.

Since desegregating, the two teams have met only twice. In 1975, Alabama crushed Clemson 56-0, and then in 2008 (the game pictured above) in the season-opening college football “kickoff game,” Alabama prevailed again, 34-10.

On Monday night, most experts, and Las Vegas oddsmakers, favor Alabama to make it 13 wins in a row over Clemson, and to capture the Tide’s third national championship in five years. Vegas sees Alabama as seven-point favorites.

Kickoff is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, on Monday, January 11. That’s 8:30 p.m. Eastern Time, 7:30 p.m. Central.

If the Clemson Tigers plan to overcome the odds against them, they’ll need to figure out some way to put the brakes on 21-year-old Heisman Trophy-winning runner Derrick Henry. But even though Henry rushed for an astounding 2,061 yards and 25 touchdowns at 5.7 yards per carry, he was held to just 75 yards in Alabama’s destruction of Michigan State in the Cotton Bowl on New Year’s Eve.

That game gives Clemson safety Jayron Kearse confidence that the Tigers’ defense can neutralize the best runner in the nation.

“We watch film and we see weaknesses… We watched the Michigan State game and they held him to 60-something yards, so it can be done. Coach (Venables) has to put us in a position to do that.”

Of course, the Clemson offense boasts the Heisman Trophy runner-up, sophomore quarterback Deshaun Watson, who not only completes 68 percent of his passes with 31 touchdo

Clemson will likely get a boost from defensive lineman Shaq Lawson, who plans to return from injury to play in the National Championship Game.

Clemson hasn’t lost this season, but Alabama has looked like the nation’s best team over the last few months. Nick Saban’s squad has won 11 games in a row, limiting 10 opponents to 16 points or less. Few teams have given them much of a challenge, and it wouldn’t be surprising to several experts if the Crimson Tide win this one handily.

Alabama dominated the Cotton Bowl, shutting out Michigan State, 38-0. During their current winning streak, Alabama has faced six teams ranked in the top 18 during the time of their matchup, winning each contest by at least 14 points.

The Tigers haven’t been quite as dominant, allowing six opponents to lose by 10 points or less. In their only matchup against a team from the SEC, Clemson defeated last-place South Carolina by just five points.

There is a segment of experts that believes Clemson will remain unbeaten. The ACC isn’t nearly as strong as the SEC, but Clemson has defeated their share of tough opponents. The nation’s No.1 team has four victories over top-10 teams, including a 20-point victory over No.4 Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl.

Below are expert predictions for the national championship game between Alabama and Clemson.

Bama vs. Clemson is the CFP’s glorified SEC title game

If college football fans squint their eyes just right when Clemson rubs on “Howard’s Rock” and then runs down the hill in Death Valley amid thunderous cheers, many would swear they were attending an SEC football game. Folks down south view Clemson as the most SEC of teams that aren’t SEC, so folks from everywhere else might look at the Tigers’ showdown with Alabama in the College Football Playoff National Championship Presented by AT&T on Jan. 11 (ESPN, 8:30 p.m. ET) in Glendale, Arizona, as a glorified SEC game.

Bama vs. Clemson is the CFP's glorified SEC title game

Yet the inadequacy of that very sentiment — obsessive regionalism! — also enriches this game, which is already rife with enrapturing plotlines.

Yes, a good ol’ southern brawl in the desert will decide the 2015 national championship, but the ACC-SEC schism is as real and freighted with meaning as the bitter divide between the SEC and everyone else. This game also is about darkness and light and the shadow of Bear Bryant. As Clemson coach Dabo Swinney would and surely will say, “Bring your own guts.”

No. 1 Clemson and No. 2 Alabama more than validated their rankings with dominant showings in the New Year’s Eve semifinals. Clemson rolled over Oklahoma 37-17, owning the second half by a 21-zip count. Speaking of zip, Alabama simply smothered overmatched Michigan State 38-0, outgaining the Spartans 440 yards to 239.

Everyone expected Alabama to be here. It will be aiming for its fourth national title in seven seasons. Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban will get a shot at his fifth national title, which would tie him with Bryant as the only coach in major college history to win five.

At this juncture in college football history the Tide is the sport’s Death Star. Alabama’s longstanding dominance and seemingly superior talent as well as its often dour head coach force the program to don black hats.

Meanwhile, Clemson and colorful, quotable, dancing-king coach Swinney are the upstarts, the free spirits, the good guys. The Tigers’ only national championship came in 1981, and only this season did we learn via Swinney that “Clemsoning” — aka Clemson finding bizarre ways to lose — is no longer a thing.

Free spirits? Who the heck calls a fake punt pass to a 322-pound freshman defensive tackle, as Swinney did against the flummoxed Sooners. Heck, Clemson is so contrarian that it’s playing for a national title with a negative turnover margin for the season. The last 20 national champions were at least plus-three in turnover margin.

The nation’s only unbeaten team, the Tigers are riding a 17-game winning streak and could become FBS football’s first team to finish 15-0.

It’s also notable that Swinney was raised in Pelham, Alabama, and is a former receiver and assistant coach at Alabama. More than a few folks have speculated he might be in line to replace the 64-year-old Saban down the road.

Alabama leads the all-time series 12-3, but the teams have played only once since 1975 — a 34-10 Tide win in the 2008 opener. Various oddsmakers have initially listed the Tide as around a touchdown favorite.

Of course, oddsmakers rated Oklahoma a four-point favorite against Clemson, something Swinney didn’t hesitate to note to his players, before and after the game.

Clemson, which is 7-7 against SEC teams under Swinney, also looks like a team that can physically match up with Alabama at the line of scrimmage and is decidedly superior at several positions, most critically at quarterback. As Alabama is an SEC team, it’s mostly unfamiliar with playing against a good quarterback.

Deshaun Watson, who finished third in the Heisman Trophy voting, will be the best quarterback the Tide have faced this season. Moreover, unlike Michigan State’s Connor Cook, he’s a dual threat, and athletic quarterbacks sometimes give Saban and his ravenous defense trouble. Watson has rushed for over 100 yards in five of the past six games while throwing for 3,512 yards and 30 touchdowns.

The Tigers’ big question entering the season was their entirely rebuilt defensive and offensive lines. After outrushing Oklahoma 312 yards to 67, it’s pretty clear that’s no longer an issue. The defense dominated the Sooners even without the services of star end Shaq Lawson, who hurt his knee early in the first quarter. His status for the title game is uncertain at this point.

“They played in a more physical way than we did,” Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said.

Of course, Alabama’s utter demolition of Michigan State – the Spartans rushed for 29 yards – suggests a team that is playing on another level.

Alabama and the SEC are trying to win their first national title in three seasons, hoping for a return to their dominance of the BCS era.

Whether you view that as a return to the dark side or not, it will be part of what fuels the anticipation for what figures to be a heck of a brawl. more information here – Alabama vs Clemson live stream
