Roll out the green carpet. The 2019 College Football Playoff National Championship Game Presented by AT&T (try saying it five times fast) is set.
Because united we fan. The CFP is the grand finale of the college football season and everyone you know is flexing school spirit. Last year, 28.4 million people tuned in to the CFP National Championship Game. That's a lot of guac.
Teams across the nation tried to impress the Selection Committee all season long. Four of them went head-to-head in the semifinal (it happened over the holiday limbo when you didn’t know what day it was).
And then there were two. Alabama and Clemson are facing off for the national title for the third time in four years. Here's what you should know about them...
It didn’t take a crystal ball to see this one coming. No.1 ranked ‘Bama has been the team to beat all season. And the season before that. And the season before that. The Crimson Tide has won a bid to the CFP for every year of the playoff's existence. Hint: this year makes it five.
Just behind ‘Bama is No.2 ranked Clemson. The Tigers earned their fourth-straight trip to the College Football Playoff. FYI, in 2017 they beat ‘Bama in a v close national championship game (35-31).
Want to know who’s in charge of all this? That would be the coaches. Get a rundown on the ones who took their teams to the top by listening to our Skimm Note...
