    Expert Alabama vs. Clemson national championship picks for Monday night’s title showdown.


    It’s a bittersweet day for college football fans. While we’ve been anxiously waiting months to see who’s crowned the national champion, Monday, Jan. 11 also marks the end of another season.

    But before we worry about how we are going to pass the time until the 2016 kickoff, there’s one more game to rule them all: Alabama vs. Clemson.

    The Crimson Tide will try to protect the SEC’s reputation as the nation’s best conference. Nick Saban led his team to an 11-1 regular season record, SEC championship win over Florida, and Cotton Bowl victory over Michigan State. The Crimson Tide’s lone loss came by way of a 43-37 defeat to Ole Miss in the third game of the year. Since then it’s been nothing but perfect for Alabama, which is seeking the program’s 16th national championship. A win would move Saban’s legacy into a mythical realm. 

    The Tigers will try to break a drought of more than three decades since Death Valley has welcomed a national title home. Clemson’s last, and only, championship was won in 1981. If Dabo Swinney can take Saban and the Crimson Tide down to win the program’s second championship, he would instantly find himself among the top current coaches in the game — if he isn’t there already.

    Clemson also has the chance to finish at a perfect 15-0. The Tigers cruised through the ACC this season before knocking off North Carolina in the conference title game and Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl.

    At 8:30 p.m. ET tonight, Alabama and Clemson will battle for the right to call themsleves champions.
