The big game is finally here in college football and as it turns out, we have a rematch of last years exciting championship final.
The defending champion Alabama Crimson Tide will once again battle the Tigers of Clemson to determine a champion in college football.
On Monday, January 9th at 8 pm ET, both teams will meet in Tampa at Raymond James Stadium for all the marbles. And no team is looking forward to it as much as Clemson as they look to exact a bit of revenge after dropping a close game to the Tide last year.

Point totals for the game have dropped from an initial 53.5 points to 50.5 points by mid-week.
This could be after the Tigers defense came up huge against Ohio State and after Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin left the team to focus on his head coaching gig.
College football betting in week 20 of the season is sure to be active as bettors have one final chance to place a wager until the fall.
Highlights and History
Alabama used a strong running game and a dominant defense to shut down Washington 24-7 in their semifinal game. Running back Bo Scarbrough was the star as he ran for 180 yards on 19 carries and scored two Bama touchdowns.
The other touchdown was scored by the defense when linebacker Ryan Anderson took an interception back 26 yards for the score.
For Clemson, few expected them to shut out a Buckeye offense that was averaging almost 43 points a game, but they did. Not only that, but they put up 31 points on a tough Ohio State defense and came away with a 31-0 victory.
Tiger quarterback Deshaun Watson showed why he is so highly regarded as he threw one touchdown pass and ran for another two scores in leading Clemson to the win.
So now it comes down to one game for the 2017 College Football Championship.
There is little question the two best teams are playing for the title and Clemson has the added incentive of looking for payback after last year.
This is a tough game to call. You want to say that an experienced quarterback with championship game experience will be able to play better than a true freshman quarterback who was in high school last year.
But then maybe you haven’t met Bama’s Jalen Hurts. And then there’s the Alabama defense. The way they fly around the field and make plays, Watson must be at his best to put points on the board.
I see another game that goes down to the wire and whoever has the ball last could be the winner.
