Alabama's Sugar Bowl win earned Nick Saban a $100000 bonus and the chance to make another $100000 in the title
Now, following the Crimson Tide and LSU in the 2012 BCS Championship Game in New Orleans, for the second time in seven years, it's an all-SEC party in the South for the title.
The Bulldogs advanced to the championship game with a thrilling 54-48 double-overtime win over Oklahoma in the Rose Bowl Game presented by Northwestern Mutual.
Both teams enter the match-up with identical 12-1 records and both teams are making their second-ever appearances in Pasadena. The Bulldogs closed as a consensus one-point favorite over Alabama in that game. Georgia gave up 20 points or more twice in 2017.
Clemson, the football team, faces Alabama, led by quarterback Jalen Hurts, in the Sugar Bowl on Monday night with a spot in the College Football Playoff national championship game at stake.
The National Championship game will be played in Atlanta on Monday, January 8 in Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
Alabama has been favored in 110 of its previous 111 games. Alabama has been included in the College Football Playoff every season that it has been in existence.
The Crimson Tide imposed its will during the Sugar Bowl matchup against ACC foe Clemson. Kelly Bryant has led Clemson to the top of the rankings in his first season as a starting quarterback but he will be facing one of the best defenses in the nation. The Crimson Tide ranks third in rushing defense, the Tigers 12th. A live stream is available on WatchESPN.
