One year after coming up short in the title game, the Tigers ruin Bama's perfect season

That'll teach me to sign off early.  Bama's running backs ran into so little effective defense in the first half that I thought they had it in the bag.

The Tide (16 championships) missed an opportunity to make up some ground on Yale and Princeton (27 and 28) (wiki (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/College_football_national_championships_in_NCAA_Division_I_FBS#National_championship_claims_by_school))  :awesomeface:

Great game, especially the 4th quarter.

So now the first 3 titles of the playoff era have been won by 3 different schools, each from different conferences. That's the same way the BCS started off, in fact, it managed to have its first 5 titles won by schools from 5 different conferences (and had all 6 of its conferences with a title by year 7)

I had to restrain myself after VT came back from a 24-0 deficit at halftime to win 35-24 over Arkansas.  I was so embarrassed after being so confident that the game was over that I had promised myself to not say that before halftime anymore.    :banghead:

Yeah, as a '95 Clemson grad who works with three 'Bama grads, needless to say I walked into work yesterday with my head held high.  I ran my phone battery down yesterday morning before work checking my FB feed, making sure it wasn't a dream.

Anyone else fall asleep from all the commercials that they had throughout the game?  If I recall correctly the game was over four hours despite ending in regulation.

Near the end of the game, they also started to call reviews for every play though I thought that a few of them were unnecessary.

I ended up switching to play a round of Battlefield 1, match lasted 35 minutes. When I left, it was the beginning of the 2nd. Came back and they still had 6 minutes left!
