Clemson made history Monday night by becoming the first 15-0 team in modern college football history. The Crimson Tide beat the Tigers in last year's semifinals before beating Georgia in the title game.

The 28-point loss was the worst a Nick Saban-coached Alabama team has ever suffered.

"We're 15-0, we beat the best team ever, nobody's taking that away from us, " Clemson All-America defensive tackle Christian Wilkins said. Justyn Ross caught six balls for 153 yards and a score for Clemson, which shut out 'Bama after leading 31-16 at the half.

Clemson had it wrapped up midway through the third quarter.

Swinney went on to say that the season was "just a blessing" and that "it's simply the grace of the good Lord to allow us to experience something like this". Clemson also upset top-ranked Alabama in the 2016 national championship game 35-31.

Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa, the hero of last year's national championship game, threw two interceptions in the first half and was unable to lead his team to pay-dirt over the final 44 minutes of the game.

Saban lamented numerous mistakes: blown coverages on third down (Clemson was 10 for 15), trouble in the red zone, and special teams mishaps, including a fake field goal that flopped on the first possession of the second half. Overall, the sophomore went 22 for 34 for 295 yards and two touchdowns in the game.

And after the game, many blamed USA rapper Drake for jinxing Alabama by wearing a team hoodie in the lead-up to the game.

"I feel like it's not really up for debate", Clemson cornerback Trayvon Mullen said. We shot ourselves in the foot by me throwing that interception for a touchdown, and then not finishing drives the way we wanted to.

"We had a great season, but five words: Good is not good enough", Tagovailoa said.

Alabama gained 224 yards in the first quarter but just 42 in the second as Clemson took control on both sides.
