    Alabama national championship highlights vs. Clemson. The Crimson Tide topped the Tigers, 45-40.

    The Alabama Crimson Tide have done it — again. They’ve captured yet another national championship. For Nick Saban, it was his fifth national title overall and his fourth with the Tide. Oh, and we can’t forget about the fact that it was also Saban’s 100th win with Alabama.

    Yeah, it’s safe to say the living legend of a coach had a pretty good time on Monday night. Even though Dabo Swinney’s Clemson Tigers team gave the Tide all they could handle, Alabama still found a way to get it done, as it’s done so many times in recent years.

    Saban will surely use this most recent national championship as fuel to the fire he’s about to light on the recruiting trail. He can pitch the idea of playing on the biggest stage in college football and what it’s like to make plays in clutch moments.

    The Tide players made it easy for their coach with the plays they pulled off.

    Let’s take a look at a few of the biggest Alabama national championship highlights from the night.

    Kenyan Drake Takes It To The House

    Kenyan Drake really busted things open in the fourth quarter when he took this kickoff and returned it all the way to the house for a 95-yard touchdown.

    Perfectly Called And Executed Onside Kick

    And with the game tied 24-24, Saban made a move that we imagine only he would make. The Tide head coach called for an onside kick to try and get the ball back, and it worked out perfectly.

    O.J. Howard Introduces Himself To The Nation

    Maybe the biggest performance of the night came from tight end O.J. Howard, who had not caught a touchdown pass since 2013. But he stayed patient with Lane Kiffin’s offense, and it led to a breakout performance when the lights were brightest.
