National champion Clemson preseason favorite already for next season

Trevor Lawrence passed for 347 yards and three touchdowns as the Tigers blasted the Crimson Tide, 44-16 in the College Football Playoff national championship game at Santa Clara, California.

"Congratulations to a truly great football team, the Clemson Tigers, on an incredible win last night against a powerful Alabama team", he wrote. The 2018 Tigers accomplished a feat 121 years in the making, becoming the first FBS football team to go 15-0 or 16-0 since Penn in 1897. "I think they can be one of the best teams ever".

There is plenty yet to be written as we head into 2019, but first, some team (s) are going to need to figure out a way to beat Alabama and Clemson. Heisman Trophy runner-up Tua Tagovailoa threw a second interception and was 22 of 34 for 295 yards with two first-quarter TDs, along with minus-9 yards rushing. Coach Dabo Swinney took to the podium immediately after the win and said he'll soak it all up now, but he'll get back to film Friday and start preparing for next season. The Crimson Tide beat the Tigers in last year's semifinals before beating Georgia in the title game. It was also just the seventh interception and second interception returned for a touchdown in Tagovailoa's career. That led to Travis Etienne's third touchdown of the half, a 5-yard shovel pass from Lawrence. The 15-point halftime deficit was the largest the Tide has ever faced under Saban.

Ross sprinted away and the shocking rout was on. It was the same top four in final Amway Coaches Poll. People don't believe that. I am ready to move on to the next chapter in my life.
