Alabama fell short of winning their 17th National Championship against the Clemson Tigers in the much anticipated rematch National Championship Game of 2017. Once Bo Scarbough went out in the 3rd quarter with what turned out to be a broken leg, Bama's offense could not sustain a drive in the second half forcing the Bama defense to stay on the field way too long. Clemson ran 99 offensive plays, and by the end of the 4th quarter, Bama's defense was simply gassed, and Deshawn Watson was simply too good.. In retrospect, Bama came within 1 second of securing National Championship #17, but give credit to Clemson, they played a great football game. The 2017 season starts now, and Bama is already picked as the odds on favorite to wn the 2017 National Championship.
So get ready for 2017. Bama will be back in the mix. Come on out to one of the three Watch Party locations and watch the Tide take on Florida State in the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta, GA. Come early and get a good seat to watch the Tide begins the 2017 season.
