On a touchdown pass with one second left on the clock, Clemson University defeated the University of Alabama 35-31, in an instant classic game to win the National Championship. When you discuss the greatest games of all time, in any sport, this game will be mentioned. I thought the game was over when Alabama went up 14-0, and again when Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts hit Clemson killer tight end O.J. Howard with a 68 yard touchdown pass to put the Tide up ten in the third quarter, but the gritty Clemson Tigers kept battling back. Alabama lost the lead, but retook it with 2:07 remaining on the clock, on a 30 yard scramble by Hurts. However Clemson marched down the field, as quarterback DeShaun Watson hit Mike Williams and Jordan Leggett for big gains (and a huge pass interference penalty against Williams) on the final drive, putting Clemson on the Alabama two-yard-line with six seconds remaining. Then Watson scrambled right, hit former walk on wide receiver Hunter Refrow in the end zone, and the Clemson Tigers were national champions. Congratulations to Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney, who not only got revenge for a national championship game loss to Alabama last year, but who defeated his alma mater. Congratulations to Clemson University fans and alumni, on your first national championship since 1981 and second all-time, hard earned and well deserved.
