The Tide's bid for a second straight title was denied in Tampa last season when the Tigers scored a game-winning TD with one second left in a 35-31 victory.

For the third year running, Alabama and Clemson meet in the College Football Playoff, and if history is any indication, fans are in for a thriller.

Regardless of which team emerges victorious on January 1st, Sugar Bowl tickets will seems like a relative bargain compare to National Championship Prices, which start from $1,503. Even though Alabama is not in our conference, I mean, any time you line up to play those guys, you know it's going to be an "everything you got" type of game. "Ohio State, just too many flaws, in my opinion, to be number four and play for a national championship", he explained.

From the first practice of spring camp, Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney made one thing very clear to his team - they were not defending anything.

Two years ago, Clemson was the No. 1 unbeaten seed and Alabama was the once-beaten No. 2 selection.

On Sunday, Saban expressed his satisfaction and excitement for the Alabama football team being involved in the Playoff and the Sugar Bowl. For a chance at the national championship and they do without having to face Georgia along the way.

This will be Clemson's second appearance in the Allstate Sugar Bowl, the first since the 1958 season.

Who: No. 1 Clemson vs.

"I hate to admit that we had recruits in for official visits this weekend", Saban said. They went on the road to beat rival SC 34-10 on November 25 and then beat Miami 38-3 in the ACC championship game on Saturday. So, when I got here, everybody was waiting for me, and it was really exciting.

"We are familiar with each other, but the difference this year is that we will be playing in the semifinals so we will have more time to prepare for each other". And the Iron Bowl says one text message to date 7870 goes on to say he news that he would end up one of the top four teams in Red Cross is his way into the national. Clemson opened this season 6-0, lost 27-24 at unranked Syracuse and then ran off six straight wins including a 38-3 domination of No. 7 Miami in Saturday night's ACC championship game.
