Clemson's Win Over Alabama In Tweet Form

The celebrating and heartbreak didn't just stick to the field.

Last night was more than deserving of all the hype as Clemson and Alabama faced each other for the second year in a row for the College Football Playoff National Championship. The game was a mindblowing nail biter, as Clemson dethroned Bama with a touchdown with one second left on the clock.

Oh, but the celebrating and heartbreak didn't just stick to the field. Fans went absolutely wild on Twitter last night. There were times when I truly didn't know what was more exciting to follow.

As always, ESPN was ready to set the tone of this long-anticipated rematch where no mercy would be shown.
During the game, Bama fans were pretty confident about a victory with plays like O.J. Howard's 68-yard touchdown that absolutely burned the Clemson defense.
But the reigning champs couldn't stop the Tigers, or should I say Deshaun Watson, who was by far the driving force last night, totaling 443 yards when it counted. And he knew he'd be bringing this A-game, as fans flocked to his twitter and pulled up this beauty BACK FROM 2012.
And when sportscasters noted this stat.
He might've made it look easy, but Watson still got tossed up a bit.
Even Pro Players weighed in on their opinions and admiration for these insanely talented athletes like Bo Scarbrough, whose third quarter injury definitely had an impact on the game.
The fanbase immediately tanked.
But for the Clemson fans, this victory was long-awaited, and the team busted out some hamstring poppin' moves to celebrate.
Who am I kidding, the whole South is pretty damn happy about this victory.
As for what the future will bring, well...

Alabama vs. Clemson in 2016 College National Championship

Kick Off: 8:30 p.m. EST

FlockU is tailgating today and giving out free pizza and swag because we're cool and also not allowed to give out free booze. Stop by if you're at the game.

No. 1 Clemson is going for its first national championship in 34 seasons. They're up against No. 2 Alabama, which is going for its fourth win in seven seasons under Saban.

The Crimson Tide is favored to win by 7 points over the Clemson Tigers tonight, but it looks like Watson is winning in the looks department. Coker may be losing on Twitter but the dude is QB for Alabama, pretty sure he's getting laid tonight.

College Football Week 7: Games To Watch

Alabama-Tennessee? Sign me up.

Six weeks down and just over 13 more to go for the 2016-17 college football season.

If you read last week's column, you were probably a very satisfied individual as Tennessee-Texas A&M lived up to the hype as the No. 1 game to watch. The Vols shook off yet another slow start and tested their luck once again in the fourth quarter, somehow managing to erase a 14-point deficit with less than three minutes remaining in regulation.

Unfortunately, the magic ended, as they lost in overtime 45-38 and fell to 5-1 on the season, while the Aggies improved to 6-0 and have officially become the real deal -- they are now the biggest threat to dethrone Alabama in the SEC (though Auburn looks to make a run, too).

Now that we've hit Week 7 of the 2016 campaign, conference play is in full swing and every game matters. Here are the top 10 best games that you should be watching this weekend:

Arizona State at Colorado - Saturday, Oct. 15, 8 p.m. ET (PAC12)
Both teams enter with a combined 9-3 record, which most would consider to be above any preseason expectations. Either way, coming out on top would catapult the winner into first place in the Pac-12 South, making it a prime contender for the division.

Nebraska at Indiana - Saturday, Oct. 15, 3:30 p.m. ET (ABC/ESPN2)
I was one of the few to pick Nebraska as the Big Ten West favorite this past August and even had the Cornhuskers in my preseason top 25. I'm not 100 percent sold on putting them in my top 10 just yet -- much like the AP has done -- but a strong performance in Bloomington would help push me in that direction.

NC State at Clemson - Saturday, Oct. 15, noon ET (ABC)
If it weren't for a heartbreaking Week 2 loss at East Carolina, Dave Doeren's NC State crew would be sitting at 5-0 entering this contest with undefeated Clemson. Instead, the Wolfpack are 4-1 with back-to-back wins against Wake Forest and Notre Dame. Is this a trap game for the Tigers?

Ole Miss at Arkansas - Saturday, Oct. 15, 7 p.m. ET (ESPN)
These teams totaled 105 points during last season's overtime barn-burner in Oxford, which resulted in a 53-52 win for Arkansas. Watching the scoreboard hit triple digits is always fun, and there's potential for a repeat performance on Saturday night.

Wake Forest at Florida State - Saturday, Oct. 15, 3:30 p.m. ET (ESPN)
Wake Forest is 5-1. This is not a drill; I repeat, Wake Forest is 5-1. Do I have your attention? The Demon Deacons haven't won five games in a full season since 2012 and need just one more to become bowl eligible for the first time since 2011. The program hasn't been this hot since it started 5-1 in what resulted in an 11-3 Orange Bowl appearance a decade ago. Beating Florida State on the road probably isn't where it earns win No. 6 this season, but still ... Wake Forest, y'all.

UCLA at Washington State - Saturday, Oct. 15, 10:30 p.m. ET (ESPN)
Mike Leach has Wazzu in position to compete with Washington for the Pac-12 North and UCLA desperately needs a win to stay in contention for the South. This game has some seriously underrated value.

West Virginia at Texas Tech - Saturday, Oct. 15, noon ET (FS1)
Dana Holgorsen vs. Kliff Kingsbury. This one could hit 80 points ... by halftime.

North Carolina at Miami - Saturday, Oct. 15, 3:30 p.m. ET (ABC/ESPN2)
Even with the heartbreaking, 20-19 loss to Florida State, it's clear that a storm is brewing in South Beach under coach Mark Richt. But how Miami responds after getting beat to its most hated rival for a seventh straight year will be key in determining how the rest of the season plays out; the Hurricanes are 7-9 after FSU week since 2013.

Alabama at Tennessee - Saturday, Oct. 15, 3:30 p.m. ET (CBS)
This one needs no explanation. A win would give Alabama its 10th in a row against Tennessee; a win for the Vols would put them back in contention for a College Football Playoff run. You're not missing this game, plain and simple.

Ohio State at Wisconsin - Saturday, Oct. 15, 8 p.m. ET (ABC)
Ohio State is trying to make its case for being the No. 1 team in the country, and beating a stout Wisconsin team on the road would add some padding to that argument. The last time these two met (also on a national stage) didn't go over so well for the Badgers when they were completely overwhelmed in the 2014 Big Ten Championship Game, 59-0.

The College Football Playoff Is Falling Into Place

Here are the teams that still have a chance.

The college football regular season has come to an end and Championship Weekend is upon us. The Michigan/Ohio State game was one for the ages, and it will play a huge role in the shaping-up of the four-team college football playoff. Here are the seven teams that are still in the running for the playoff, and what their chances look like to actually achieve glory.

1. Alabama (99.9 percent chance to get in)
The Crimson Tide are in, there's no doubt about it. They finished the regular season 12-0 and easily handled their biggest challenge, in-state rival Auburn. Alabama will play in the SEC title game against Florida, but that might as well be an exhibition game. The Tide should blow them out, but even if they lose, a 12-1 record wouldn't drop them out of that No. 1 spot, let alone a top-four spot. Roll Tide Roll.

2. Ohio State (95 percent chance to get in)
After a miraculous win over The Team Up North, the Buckeyes are flying high with an 11-1 record. Their one loss to Penn State, however, kept them out of the Big Ten title game. This is probably better off for Ohio State because it gets to have a week off to see how everything plays out. I think its win over No. 3 Michigan (when OSU was No. 2) is enough to get them in regardless of how the Big Ten plays out. Urban Meyer's team might be the only one that can take down mighty Alabama.

3. Clemson (66.7 percent chance to get in)
I think Clemson is the weakest one-loss team in this group, but it still controls its own destiny to get back into the playoff. The Tigers will play the ACC title game on Saturday against a sneaky Virginia Tech team. That contest won't be a gimme and VT won't go down easy. But if Clemson wins like it is supposed to, it can punch its ticket to a New Years bowl game as ACC champions.

4. Michigan (25 percent to get in)
At 10-2, without a chance to win a Big Ten championship, there is simply no way Michigan can get in without something crazy happening. I think its best chance is if Clemson loses in the ACC Championship, Penn State wins the Big Ten and Washington loses the PAC-12. Otherwise, it will be a season of "what ifs" for Jim Harbaugh and his group that fell just short against Ohio State this week.

5. Washington (50 percent to get in)
The Huskies are certainly on the bubble, but I think they still control their own destiny. They will face Colorado in the PAC-12 title game, and if they win that, they'll be 12-1 with their only loss coming to Southern Cal. The playoff committee would have a really tough time keeping UW out of the top four if this is how it plays out. A one-loss PAC-12 champion should certainly be considered, but the committee hasn't always given that conference too much respect.

6. Wisconsin (33 percent to get in)
Wisconsin represents the Big Ten West in the conference championship game in Indianapolis next Saturday. Although there isn't too much impressive stuff to note about this team, it isn't necessarily out yet. A win over Penn State would put them at 11-2 and crown them Big Ten champs. The Badgers' two losses also came to the conference's biggest competitors, OSU and Michigan. To get in, however, Wisconsin would need some help from Clemson and UW, for sure.

7. Penn State (20 percent to get in)
PSU is this year's Cinderella Story, but that doesn't mean there's no chance for them. They erased a lot of doubts by finishing the regular season on an eight-game tear and finishing 10-2. They beat Ohio State. There's no reason to believe they can't beat Wisconsin on Saturday. Their two losses are pretty quality, on the road to Michigan and Pitt (who beat Clemson, too). Still, the committee might give Michigan the advantage over a two-loss Big Ten champion Penn State. For that reason, PSU needs to win on Saturday and hope at least one of the two teams above it loses, Clemson and Washington.
