College football bowl TV schedule and game previews

This game should be fun to watch and very competitive, but don't get it twisted; Alabama will win its 16th national championship on Monday night.

In three days the Clemson Tigers will face maybe the greatest college football dynasty of all time.

Key stats: Alabama has 15 national championships, including three under Saban, who guided the program to national titles in 2009, 2010 and 2012. 'Bama has finished in the top 10 of the final AP poll in each of those seven seasons and on Monday will play for its fourth national title in that period. The Tigers have won 17 consecutive games dating back to last season and throttled Oklahoma in the second half of their semifinal en route to a 37-17 victory. The Tigers enter Monday's 8:30 p.m. game as the 11th-ranked total offense. Watching Smart's defense make the Spartans lay a goose egg probably has the Georgia alumni and regents feeling pretty good about themselves right now, but Smart has one more job to do and it's the toughest one he's had all year; stop the Clemson offense.

So, Jones says he has to be careful with his inventory, realizing that, "if we lose, I could be stuck with a lot of stuff". "We know what we've got to do". We gotta do what we gotta do. When he went to the University of Alabama it was not with a football scholarship.

Clemson athletic director Dan Radakovich, one of 12 members of the College Football Playoff selection committee, can finally wear his Clemson orange gear and mention his team and the playoff in the same sentence. "If the ligament is significantly unstable, or the athlete is not able to protect themselves and they can't really run or change directions quickly, then it's unsafe to play".

Dr. Robert Marx, an orthopedic surgeon at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City, said the severity of a sprained MCL can vary widely, but that it's not unusual for someone with a low-grade injury to return to the playing field less than two weeks later. And in part because of Elliott's patience - something he learned from childhood.

Ann Curry was picking up her daughter, who flew in from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to go to the game with them.

"But you get on, you go on with your life, and I've been at Clemson 13 years, and I've been trying to get back to the national championship as a coach for 20-plus years now", Swinney said. We thought he was a really great quarterback.

It has been the Tigers' ability to amass record breaking yards this season through the air and on the ground that has given Elliott and the rest of the offensive coaching staff a sense of peace when games are tight.

Spears was All-American defensive lineman himself and his words carry a little more weight.

A two-hour delay would mean missing their connecting flight.
