- Rematch for BCS Title Game… Well I am sure most of the college football fans around her already know that both Alabama and Clemson took care of business on Saturday to set up a re-match for this national championship one week from today down in Tampa… Just in case you had surgery Saturday ands are just now getting over the drugs they gave you lets recap those games… Alabama defeated Washington 24-7 in a game that was closer than a lot of people thought it might be as Alabama only had a 17-7 lead at the half and did not score again until the fourth quarter… If you want more details on this game, click here… Now the Clemson Tigers served notice to the Crimson Tide that they are looking forward to changing the results of last year’s championship game by defeating Ohio State 31-0… In this game the Clemson defense was as much the story as the offense as they held the Buckeyes scoreless for the first time since 1993… I personally think the results will be different next week… For more on this game, click here.
