The Clemson Tigers rolled over the Alabama Crimson Tide in the College Football Playoff National Championship game on Monday, upsetting the defending champs 44-16. The Tigers were led by freshman quarterback Trevor Lawrence, who completed 20 of 32 passes for 347 yards and threw three touchdowns and no interceptions to cap off a perfect 15-0 season. In doing so, Lawrence became the first true freshman starting quarterback to win a national championship since Oklahoma's Jamelle Holieway in 1985. The Tigers also became the first team in modern college football history to finish a season 15-0 and the first overall to do so since the University of Pennsylvania in 1897. It was the fourth year in a row that Alabama and Clemson had met in college football’s four-team playoff, and the third time they faced off in the championship game.
