Insane Stat From Clemson’s Win Vs. Alabama Highlights Nick Saban’s Dominance

Alabama head coach Nick Saban reacts after the NCAA college football playoff championship game against Clemson, Monday, Jan. 7, 2019, in Santa Clara, Calif. Clemson beat Alabama 44-16. On Monday, the Tigers became the first college football team to win 15 games in a season since the 19th century.

"There was a lot of talk about "best ever" all year long", Swinney said, according to ESPN.

Spoiler alert for these early rankings: The SEC isn't dominating (only five teams in these rankings), though the best challengers to crack the four-team CFP field this year are Georgia and LSU. "We were never in that conversation".

Mullen, the 6-foot-1 and 190 pound corner, had a huge performance in the championship game against Alabama, with six tackles, an interception and a forced fumble.

Lawrence had a flawless game in the semi-final, completing 69 percent of his passes, and he replicated that form by besting the more experienced Tua Tagovailoa - the quarterback for the Crimson Tide - in the final. Swinney knew his team could not beat the No. 1 Crimson Tide without an explosive offense it lacked in 2017.

Fox News’ Shep Smith provides immediate fact-check of Trump’s wall speech
Journalists, public figures, and more have taken to Twitter to call for real-time fact checking, as well as other precautions. Fox News posted a massive rating for Tuesday night's Presidential address. "They hope that'll hurt [Trump] in 2020", he said.

The Clemson Tigers official account also could not resist a dig at the singer as it became clear they were heading for their second national championship in three years. That led to Travis Etienne's third touchdown of the half, a 5-yard shovel pass from Lawrence. The 15-point halftime deficit was the largest the Tide has ever faced under Saban.

The good news and bad news about Clemson's blowout of Alabama.

"Our goal is not to win a national championship".

Did we mention they have identical records over that time span?
