Clemson Tigers Win National Championship
Last Monday, the Clemson Tigers and The Alabama Crimson Tide faced off in Raymond James stadium down in Florida for the annual NCAA national championship game. The Tigers came out victoriously on a last second touchdown, the latest on championship games from the 2016-2017 to be decided in the final moments. Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson failed to win the Heisman trophy earlier this season, but has been telling everyone who will listen that he is the best player in college football, and after leading Clemson back from a two touchdown deficit to upset the the number one team on college football people are going to believe him. Watson finished with a total of 463 all purpose yards and four touchdowns that helped Clemson secure their first national championship since 1981.
This game happened just one year after Watson and the Tigers lost to Alabama despite Watson putting up a 478 yards performance. This was also the first time that Alabama coach Nick Saban lost a national championship game or a title game since 2008. With this performance cementing Watson as one of the best college football players in history, Watson now has his eyes set on the NFL draft, where he is expected to be drafted first overall by the Cleveland Browns. There were many examples during this game of game number 15 taking its toll on both teams, especially as the game threatened to go into overtime. Both teams played very well in reality, with some great big plays coming from the defensive stars of Alabama. Many players from this game are expected to gon in the first round of the NFL draft, which is in late April of this year. I hope you guys enjoyed the game if you saw it, and if you didn’t see the game then I hope you enjoyed this brief write up. See you later everyone.
