Although Alabama and Clemson are going to meet in their third national championship for four years tonight (they met in the semi-finals the second year), there are still many new stories going into the game.

The Big Picture: In the last three meetings, the highest Alabama was ranked in points per game nationally No. 1[ads1]5 (2017-18), while the highest Clemson ranked as No. 14 (2016-17). This season, Alabama ranked No. 2 (47.7 points per game) and Clemson ranked # 4 (44.3 points per game), as both teams climbed to offensive juggernaut status.

  • It should be noted that they both allow very few points (Alabama ranked # 5 in points allowed, Clemson ranked # 1), but that was the case in all three of their previous playoffs matchups, so the improved offenses are the key to look at

More stories:

  • NFL scouts will be busy: In the evening games there may be 20 or more 2019 NFL drafts. In comparison, LSU-Alabama presented "Game of the Century" in 2011 13.
  • Tua Tagovailoa vs. Trevor Lawrence: This may surprise you, but the quarterback player plays a bit for football. Who knew?
  • Dexter-less: Clemson will be without suspended star defensive tackle Dexter Williams for the second straight game. The tigers remained good without him against Notre Dame, but Alabama's deep ground field presents a far more frightening challenge.
  • Plot seats: Due to location (Santa Clara is a trek for both tabs) and a number of other factors, ticket prices are historically low and the game may not even sell out – even with over 400 members (!) of Tuas family in the presence.


  • When: 8.00 ET, ESPN (with a number of other ways to look at)
  • Lines: ALA -5.5 | U / U: 58 | Money: ALA -215 / CLEM: +180 (via Westgate Superbook)
