Clemson And Alabama Pummel Opposition, Will Face Off For Football Title

Hunter Renfrow of the Clemson Tigers celebrates scoring a touchdown in the third quarter Thursday against the Oklahoma Sooners during the 2015 Capital One Orange Bowl at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida.

Clemson University, having its best football season in decades, will face off for the national title against perennial power Alabama later this month after both teams won semifinal games Thursday night.

Clemson was down a point at halftime to the University of Oklahoma, but scored three second-half touchdowns while keeping the Sooners from scoring, and won 31-17.

Alabama's defense did Clemson's one-half better, shutting out Michigan State as the Crimson Tide cruised to a 38-0 victory. The Spartans didn't get a single first down in the entire game.

The national championship game will be played at 8:30 p.m. ET on Jan. 11 in Glendale, Ariz., and broadcast on ESPN. A win against Clemson would give Alabama its fourth national title since the 2009 season; a Clemson title would be its first since 1981.
