Turns out it was just in the wrong order.

In what was a jaw-dropping, dominating performance on the sport’s biggest stage on Monday night, Clemson asserted itself as the best team in the country with a 44-16 win over Alabama in the College Football Playoff National Championship Presented by AT&T. It wasn’t surprising that Clemson won — these two programs have gone toe-to-toe now for four straight seasons in the College Football Playoff.

The baffling part was how disjointed Alabama looked, with no answers for a Clemson offense that caught the Tide unprepared with a few wrinkles it picked up from studying Alabama’s opponents.

The Crimson Tide bumbled their way through a mistake-laden game that included two turnovers that led to Clemson touchdowns, a botched fake field goal attempt, undisciplined penalties and an inability to both stop Clemson on third down and convert their own opportunities.
