What Had Happened Was: 1/10/17
Oh, you don’t know? We got you.
Clemson came, it saw, and it conquered the mighty Alabama Crimson Tide, 35-31, in the College Football Playoff National Championship game on Monday night. The Tigers, who sought revenge after last year’s gut-wrenching loss to ‘Bama in the title game, outscored the Crimson Tide, 21-7, in the fourth quarter and did so in dramatic fashion — converting back-to-back drives of 88 and 68 yards to snatch the victory.
Hunter Renfrow, who scored two touchdowns in last year’s title game, caught the game-winning score on a 2-yard pitch-and-catch, once again gashing Alabama. On Monday night, the undersized receiver had 10 catches for 92 yards and two scores. His quarterback, Deshaun Watson, completed 36 of 56 passes for 420 yards and four total touchdowns.

Clemson's ability to hang in there after nearly getting KOd early is the ultimate example.of why coaches tell players, "just keep playing."
