But as Clemson jumped to an enormous lead against top-ranked Alabama in the 44-16 win, college football fans quickly zeroed in on Drake as responsible for the blowout.

Saban is now 6-2 in national title games, with both losses coming to Clemson. I mean, Coach Saban may have won five national championships in 10 years or however long he's been there.

Clemson's senior class finished 55-4, tied with the current Alabama senior class for the most wins by a class in FBS history. First 15-0 team, to beat Notre Dame and to beat Alabama to do it, this team won 13 games by 20 points or more and led by an unbelievable group of seniors, fantastic group. It's incredible the run that they've had, but we're just thankful that we got the opportunity to experience it.
