Alabama vs Clemson’s rematch was every bit as thrilling as the original. Last night Clemson became the first team to beat a Nick Saban driven Alabama juggernaut in a National title game by defeating the ‘Tide 35-31. Clemson QB Deshaun Watson found wide receiver Hunter Renfrow for a last second touchdown giving the Tigers their first national championship in 36 years.
Coach Dabo Swinney can enjoy this victory over the team that he has considered and often stated to be the template for what he wants to build in Clemson. After eight year’s he seems to have done so.
