Clemson Coach Dabo Swinney Praises God After Winning National Championship

Video Description: The Clemson Tigers are on the top of the college football world after winning the 2019 College Football Playoff National Championship over Alabama.

For a while, catching Alabama has felt hopeless.

The two teams exchanged blows early with Clemson holding a 14-13 lead after the first quarter, but it was all Tigers after that.

Bad news is that Alabama will likely offer Swinney a blank check to coach his alma mater when 67-year-old Nick Laban retires.

Overall, the New Year's Six games, including the Cotton and Orange bowl semifinals, averaged a 9.0 overnight rating, which is up 8 percent from the second year of the playoff when the semifinals were held in the Cotton and Orange bowls on New Year's Eve. Swinney knew his team could not beat the No. 1 Crimson Tide without an explosive offense it lacked in 2017.

Alabama will be back, but Clemson will nearly certainly be there waiting for them. However, Clemson and the Crimson Tide have split the four most recent titles.

Coaches and fans have long awaited the fall of the Saban dynasty in Tuscaloosa, and many were happy to see Clemson's rout of Alabama.

It's now Alabama, Clemson, and the rest of ya'll.

The coda to Notre Dame's season was written nine days after the fact by one of the architects of the finale, that blowout loss to Clemson in the Cotton Bowl that somehow called into question the program's College Football Playoff credentials despite a ideal regular season.
