Teams who could dethrone Clemson and Alabama

  • Sorry NFL you can't draft Trevor Lawrence for another 2 years

The two programs previously met in the national title games at the conclusions of the 2015 and 2016 seasons.

One Alabama radio station got a little ahead of itself late Monday night.

Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence hit Tee Higgins with a 62-yard pass on third-and-14 deep in Tiger territory and Travis Etienne followed with a 17-yard TD run through Alabama vaunted defense.

"I've only been here for a year", Lawrence said in a news conference Tuesday.


Lawrence was almost ideal against Notre Dame in the playoff semifinal this season, completing 69 percent of his passes for 327 yards and three scores without a turnover.

Saban and the Tide will try to regroup in the offseason and more likely than not will find themselves right back in the College Football Playoffs and perhaps the National Championship Game. "There was a lot of talk about best ever, all year long". He also had 199 yards and five touchdowns on the ground.

After he threw the game-winning touchdown in relief in last season's national title game, Alabama handed the keys to quarterback Tua Tagovailoa this year, with great success. 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. Now it will be Alabama going after them, looking for revenge.

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