ARLINGTON, TX-Before taking on No. 1 Alabama in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game in Santa Clara, California, the No. 2 Clemson Tigers met up with No. 3 Notre Dame in a semifinal game played at the Cotton Bowl in Arlington, Texas. The contest turned out to be a lopsided mismatch as the Tigers ran through the Fighting Irish with a 31-0 shutout victory. Photographer Michael Lark captures the action on the field from that game.
