The matchup for the College Football National Championship is now set.

The top-ranked Clemson Tigers and second-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide have earned the trip to Glendale, Arizona, by both dominating the second half of their respective semifinal bowl games.

Unbeaten Clemson trailed by a point before routing Oklahoma in the second half of a 37-17 rout of the fourth-ranked Sooners to improve 14 and 0.

The Tide are 13-1 following their 38-0 pounding of Michigan State in the Cotton Bowl.  

It’s Clemson’s first ever trip the Valley, while it’s been a quarter century since Alabama last played here.

Alabama has been installed as a touchdown favorite in the title game.

The two teams meet at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale for the title on Monday, January 11.
