Alabama & Clemson share coaching & college football playoff history

Kelly Bryant will look to continue a strong run down the stretch and proves some national pundits right in New Orleans

Add in the wrinkle that Saban is 11-0 vs. his former assistants, winning every time by 14 or more points, and it's incredibly juicy.

Don't be surprised if Mayfield struggles in what could be his final game before entering the draft.

Just lovely. Payne's touchdown increased the Tide's lead to 17-6.

The Rose Bowl starts at 5 p.m. EST on ESPN and a live stream is available on WatchESPN.

Monday night Clemson and Alabama will meet for the third time in the College Football Playoff, but this time the game will only send the victor to the National Title game.

Whether you're talking about the playoff, the Sugar Bowl or Alabama's relationship with Clemson, the director of the Paul W. Bryant Museum says the game is historically significant in several ways.

Harry said the engaged couple are busy making plans for 2018, adding "we're really looking forward to new year". And while Harry said there was "plenty" he had to explain to Meghan , she handled it all flawlessly.

Alabama and Clemson had split the series to date, having each won a thriller. Now, following the Crimson Tide and LSU in the 2012 BCS Championship Game in New Orleans, for the second time in seven years, it's an all-SEC party in the South for the title. Monday's game takes place in the semifinals, not the national championship game, and Deshaun Watson won't be under center for the Tigers.

Alabama has been favored in 110 of its previous 111 games.

Watson was perhaps college football's best player in the last two seasons.

We thought we would get the Crimson Tide and the Bulldogs back in December before Auburn spoiled that in claiming the SEC West.

They were validated with Alabama overwhelming Clemson. The Crimson Tide ranks third in rushing defense, the Tigers 12th.
