Roll, Orange, roll. Sorry, Alabama fans. There will no national championship this year. The Clemson Tigers avenged last year’s title game loss to the Crimson Tide with a thrilling, come-from-behind 35-31 win to be crowned national champions. Of course, quarterback Deshaun Watson, who just declared for the NFL Draft following his team’s historic win against top-ranked Alabama, scurried the Crimson Tide for 463 yards and four touchdowns.
