Clemson and Alabama ready to rumble for the College Football Playoff National Championship
PHOENIX — The College Football Playoff National Championship is set for Monday night, with top-ranked Clemson taking on second ranked Alabama.
Coach Dabo Swinney takes his undefeated Tigers to face off against Coach Nick Saban and his Crimson Tide for all the marbles.
Even with Clemson's No. 1 ranking, Alabama are the favorites going into the final game.
The Tide have Jake Coker at quarterback tossing to freshman standout wide receiver Calvin Ridley. In the backfield Alabama has Heisman Trophy winner Derrick Henry.
On the other side for the Tigers is dual threat Deshaun Watson, who has been tearing it up in the air and on the ground all year long. Clemson has two strong receivers in Hunter Renfrow and Artavis Scott. Backing up Watson on the ground is Wayne Gallman.
Both teams have great defensive players. All-American defensive end Shaq Lawson has been great for Clemson, while Alabama has a solid defensive line led by A'Shawn Robinson and Jonathan Allen.
Can Clemson finish off their perfect season? Or will Alabama be taking home top honors once again?
