Clemson easily defeated defending champion Alabama Monday night in the College Football Playoff championship game at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. It was an unexpected blowout by the second-ranked Tigers, who crushed No. 1 Alabama 44-16. With the victory, Clemson became the first team in 121 years at college football’s highest level to finish a season 15-0.
“All the credit, all the glory goes to the good Lord number one, and number two, to these young people,” Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney said afterward.
