How To Watch CFP National Championship Game Online

           Could Lane Kiffin's departure cost Alabama a national title

Tonight's College Football Playoff national championship game is a rematch from last year's national final between the Clemson Tigers and the Alabama Crimson Tide.

The simplest way to summarize what's at stake Monday night is that Clemson wants a championship in a way Alabama can't relate to.

Clemson comes into the game with much momentum, having destroyed Ohio State in its semifinal game, 31-0, while Bama was making the championship with a 24-7 win over Washington.

The number of national championships won by Clemson coach Dabo Swinney.

Throw in the addition of leading receiver and likely top 10 pick Mike Williams, who missed almost all of last season with a broken vertebrae in his neck, and the Tigers should be brimming with confidence. "We went to Phoenix previous year and knew that this was one event we had to come to this".

The betting line for Alabama-Clemson has remained mostly steady since wagering opened on January 1.

There are several ways to watch Alabama play their first game since beating Washington in the College Football Playoff semifinals on December 31, 2016 at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.

In the semifinal win over Washington, Scott was called upon eight times - more than any other game all season and one short of his career high (LSU, 2014). "The boy at Clemson is an old Alabama boy, so they know how to put teams together". Similarly, no team that isn't in the top 25 has won a national title.

Don't kid yourself. Even with the SEC having something of a down year, going undefeated in the league is very, very hard, much more of a challenge than doing so in the ACC, much less NOT doing it in the ACC.

Adam Griffith has learned to accept the scrutiny associated with being the kicker of college football's most visible program. The best teams have the best coaches.

Plus, I think Clemson's defensive line isn't that far behind Alabama's.

Burton Burns, who coordinates the special teams in addition to his duties with the running backs, feels confident in his performers. That will make the game exciting to watch. Clemson is salty, too, seventh in scoring defense and eighth in total defense. If Georgia misses out, look for Alabama or Clemson to land him down the road. Those scores break the backs of opponents, and that's why we believe this to be the best Tide ever. Ford led the Tigers through their most consistent period of success with six ACC championships and 96 wins in 11 seasons.

"It definitely was a source of motivation", All-American defensive end Jonathan Allen said. They will not be intimidated or overwhelmed by the Tide.

Clemson will likely lose quarterback Deshaun Watson to the National Football League, but the returning Tigers know about winning. That same Alabama defense has only allowed 15 offensive touchdowns all year. True, he's made some mistakes. "Across the board, we might not be as big across the board as we were previous year, but we're definitely faster and able to play from sideline to sideline better". Throw in the dynamic Deshaun Watson and you have a recipe to shock the world and win a national title. If the game is close, don't be surprised if Saban tries something unorthodox again. But ask a football coach.

Golden State, like Alabama, was the reigning champions on the verge of a historical season (after winning a record 73 games in the regular season).
