The bully became the bullied on Monday night, but it would be foolish to pen an obituary for the Crimson Tide with a ton of talented players returning to Tuscaloosa next season as well as the nation's No. 1 ranked recruiting class. After the game, Ross said Clemson is the "team to beat" until someone beats them.

What began as a shootout quickly turned into a rout in Monday's College Football National Championship as Clemson turned a 16-14 early second-quarter deficit into a 44-16 victory over defending national champion Alabama.

Hurts threw two incomplete passes and was dragged down behind the line of scrimmage for a 4-yard loss in relief of Tagovailoa. Instead, he three for 347 yards and three touchdowns, looking as calm and cool has he has since winning the job in late September.

Ross finished with six catches for 153 yards and his game-changing touchdown.

Against Rotherham, for example, we played with nine players who didn't play against Liverpool and the nine were a good selection. His solution? A second league where young players face "real teams" in a competitive environment.
