Sugar Bowl: No. 4 Alabama dominates No

02 January, 2018, 10:38 | Author: Laura Christensen
  • Alabama has had to juggle its linebacker group all season due to a seemingly endless stream of ailments

The Sugar Bowl is the true main event of the New Year's Day bowl schedule.

Maybe perhaps there is even more hype going into Monday night's game with the stakes being, victor goes on to play for the National Championship.

Without Deshaun Watson, Clemson (12-2) simply has no answer for Saban's latest group of defensive standouts, sending Alabama (12-1) to an all-Southeastern Conference showdown against Georgia next Monday night in Atlanta.

It will be Saban's sixth title game in nine seasons as he seeks a fifth crown (one behind Bear Bryant), and Smart looking to end three and a half decades of frustration for Bulldogs faithful, who have waited for a championship since the days of Herschel Walker. It's a rematch of the last two national title games, both of which were decided in the final seconds.

The touchdown made it a two-possession game and the Tide gained more breathing room on the first play after the ensuing kickoff with a pick six.

The 2018 matchup between Clemson and Alabama has a much different tone than the previous two contests. Alabama has been included in the College Football Playoff every season that it has been in existence. The Tigers defeated the Crimson Tide past year behind his 420 passing yards and four total touchdowns.

Subsequent camera angles showed a blatant offensive pass interference penalty committed by Alabama that went uncalled. The game starts on ESPN at 8:45 p.m. EST.
