I'll be the first person to say all the bowl games apart from the playoffs are meaningless exhibitions, but you never want to see your team go out and totally crap the bed either (like mine did).

Nice win by the HAWKEYES over the Bulldogs in the Outback Bowl. YAY!

Cyclones kept it close in the Alamo Bowl against WSU but fell 28-26.

That was funny before the Sugar Bowl started with BEVO attacking UGGA.

Nice job by ESPN getting rid of the best part of the megacast for the title game. They're replacing the coaches in the film room with their shitty Monday Night Football crew

I'm curious how the ratings will be for tonight's game as compared to the last few years. Feels like there hasn't been much media buzz as in the past.

Reporters at the game are saying there’s a ton of empty seats.

People in the Bay area don't care about college football and plane tickets from the south east are crazy expensive.

'Bama in deep doo-doo if Clemson gets a TD on this next drive. Clemson looks to be much better prepared.

Being from the south I didnít want these two teams again but Iím loving the score so far. Nice to see most tricks Saban is pulling are getting stopped.

As an aside, it's nice to see Les Miles able to cash in on his dwindling celebrity with national advertising gigs from Dr Pepper and Dos Equis before his first year at Kansas leaves him completely unmarketable.

Did I hear correctly that the WR, RB and QB for Clemson are all true freshman? Well that sucks for the ACC and the rest of the country lol

I have never seen a Nick Sabin team get man handled they we Bama did last night. Clemson laid it on them and then some.

Couldn't happen to a nicer man or conference.

Cashed my 3-1 Clemson ticket to win it all, placed right after the conference title games.

NFL teams should start planning to suck for Lawrence in the 2020 season.

Those 2 would be the best QB and WR on the Redskins right now by far.

People always say that Alabama could win an NFL game. They just faced an offense loaded with first round talent and got smacked around. Clemson's QB is going to be the next great NFL QB and that receiver would be a top-5 pick in the draft.
