Alabam Wins National Championship


6c6b8ad40c3098e3767882d797c641bcIn college, it was finally time for the National Championship between #1 Clemson and #2 Alabama. Clemson was undefeated, but Alabama has been red hot. Clemson seemed to have control of the game throughout most of the first half. In the second half, Albama found their rhythm, and thanks to some Clemson defensive breakdowns, Alabama was able to get a safe lead.

Clemson hung in but found themselves on a goal line stand to stop Alabama’s Heisman Trophy running back Derrick Henry and hopefully get one more chance to win the game. But Henry powered through a huge pile, and spun to get the ball just an inch over the goal line for the touchdown. Clemson scored another touchdown, but it was too little too late, and Alabama won ANOTHER National Championship. With the win, head coach Nick Saban now has 5 National Championships (between LSU and Alabama). That makes him one win short of the all-time leader (Alabama’s Bear Bryant). Alabama 45, Clemson 40.

It was interesting to see how betting on the game in Las Vegas was affected. The late, unexpected touchdown score from Clemson swung the Vegas spread, and moved millions of dollars.
