USC may not be playing in the National Championship but we can all spend the evening enjoying the final college football game of the season, and the last college football game for a long time. Here are five reasons to be excited about the National Championship game between the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Clemson Tigers.
We can also watch out for any shenanigans between our old pal Lane Kiffin and his boss Nick Saban, or maybe if Steve Sarkisian will digitally share his expertise at half time. Alternatively you can treat this game as a way, way too early preview of the USC Trojans' next opponent.
