Alabama to play Clemson in Sugar Bowl for CFP semifinal

Alabama to play Clemson in Sugar Bowl for CFP semifinal

Clemson and Alabama will meet in the College Football Playoffs semifinals on January 1 in Allstate Sugar Bowl, giving New Orleans a rematch of the national championship games of the past two years.

Last year, Clemson knocked off Alabama 35-31 to win the program's second national championship.

The Tigers will face a team that was beseeched by injuries - as Alabama had eight starters who missed game, and seven of them are expected to be back for the playoff - and still managed to hold the No. 1 ranking in the first 13 weeks of the Associated Press Top 25 poll and for two weeks of the CFP rankings.

Cubelic said nationally, the odds will be 50/50 on whether Alabama or Clemson takes home the title, but. Even though Alabama is not in our conference, I mean, any time you line up to play those guys, you know it's going to be an "everything you got" type of game. That's behind the 2015 semi-final game against Ohio State, which had an average price $319, or about half of the game this season's price. I think they're a better football team over the course of the season.

No. 4 Alabama will play No. 1 Clemson on Jan 1 at 7:45 CT in the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans on ESPN.

"But what happened on Saturday (No. 2 Auburn losing to No. 6 Georgia in the SEC championship game and No. 4 Wisconsin falling to No. 8 Ohio State in the Big Ten title battle) frankly just doesn't happen every year". Championship playoffs I don't know if that's true or not but Steve Geller is it was purposeful or not it worked.

No. 1 Clemson (12-1, 7-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) vs.

This will be Clemson's second appearance in the Allstate Sugar Bowl, the first since the 1958 season. For a chance at the national championship and they do without having to face Georgia along the way.

"This is really wonderful the way it has worked out", said Swinney. Now, after securing their third straight ACC Championship and a third straight berth in the College Football Playoff, Swinney is not changing his tune - his Tigers are still on the hunt. "In the other playoff games we've played in since then, there's been a bit more focus and understanding of the consequences".
