Tigers and Crimson Tide will meet for the third time in College Football Playoff
NEW ORLEANS, La. – The Clemson football team wrapped up preparations for the Allstate Sugar Bowl on Sunday.
Monday’s Semifinal matchup will mark the 18th pairing between Alabama and Clemson in the history of the two schools, with the Crimson Tide owning a 13-4 series advantage. The two most recent matchups came in the 2016 and 2017 College Football Playoff National Championship Games. Alabama rallied to defeat the No. 1 Tigers, 45-40, to capture the Tide’s 16th national championship in the 2016 game in Glendale, Ariz. The Tigers then returned the favor with a come-from-behind, 35-31, win in the 2017 championship in Tampa, Fla.
