Whether you were rooting for the Clemson tigers or the Alabama Crimson time, I think you would agree that this National Championship was a close one and definitely one to remember. I’m sure those Alabama fans were absolutely ecstatic—(by the way for all of my Alabama people, if you need someone to clean your beer-stained carpet that developed during your watch party check out www.carpetcleaningmontgomery.com ).
The 2016 National Championship was a phenomenal game. Talk about a game that kept you on the edge of your seat! And the game was filled with one response after another. Although the Alabama Crimson tide came out on top, both teams had some value players.
First, let’s talk about Clemson! Clemson’s Quarterback, Deshaun Watson, who was a Heisman Finalist, threw some pretty nice passes and not to mention his impressive running for first downs.. And let’s not forget about their receiver, Hunter Renfrow, who made several nice catches. The entire first quarter was full of responses by each team. Clemson even began the first quarter with an immediate touchdown!
However, with a tied score of 24-24, Alabama shifted the direction of the game with a surprise onside kick. In addition, the tide’s tight end, O.J. Howard led Alabama to victory with three huge plays. And Heisman winner, Derrick Henry, pulled through as usual with three touchdowns himself.
This game was filled with some much anticipation. With both defenses weakening in the second half of the game, one of the teams had to step up to the plate with a different approach. And Alabama was that team. Overall, I think it’s safe to say that the onside kick was the turning point of the game and lead the way to Alabama’s win. Although the game was mostly a battle between the quarterbacks—Deshaun Watson versus Derrick Henry, Alabama managed to capitalize on some of Clemson’s mistakes, including interceptions, dropped balls, and more. As a result, Alabama brought in their fourth national title win in seven years with a final score of 45-40.
Football season was great! And I can’t wait to see what Fall 2016 brings!
