College football season has already started, so it’s time to make predictions on what is going to happen in the 2016-2017 season for another National championship game on January 9, 2017. The game is scheduled to be at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida where the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, NFL football team plays.
Last years championship game was in Glendale, Arizona. The University of Phoenix Stadium, home to the Arizona Cardinals. The Clemson Tigers, under head coach Dabo Swinney played a veteran Alabama Crimson Tide football squad coached by one of the great coaches of all time, Nick Saban. The nine seasons that Nick Saban has been with Bama, he has been to seven bowl game appearances with 5 victories, five SEC Western division titles, four SEC championships, and has now won 4 championship rings after the 45-40 victory against a hard-fighting Tigers program. Even with a solid offense and a terrific defense, the Tigers lost by a touchdown. Alabama is one of the best SEC football programs because of their a sturdy offense and a tough defense. Both teams are ready to kick off this year’s season for another chance to get back to the playoffs for a chance at a back-to-back championship game.
