Ultra late but here it is: It was over after the 1st half. Alabama had nothing to compete with Clemson. They were royally crushed in every aspect of the game and "Goldilocks" Lawrence played a near perfect game and showed a lot of potential (IMO). I know Alabama is the Evil Empire of the NCAA, but Clemson is slowly making it's case to become the usurper of the throne. 2 wins vs. the Crimson Tide in the last 3 National Championship games is a testament of their capacity.
