Drake's beloved Alabama Crimson Tide suffered a crushing defeat in the National Championship Game last night, and everyone on twitter let him know about it. Lawrence threw TD passes to Travis Etienne, Tee Higgins and Justyn Ross to help undefeated Clemson become the first team in the AP poll era starting in 1936 to win 15 games in a season.

Hours after winning his second national title and handing Alabama coach Nick Saban his worst loss in 12 seasons, Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said his program is still "a long way from a dynasty".

Clemson's senior class finished 55-4, tied with the current Alabama senior class for the most wins by a class in FBS history. But tonight, there's no doubt. "I'm just thankful to be a part of it".

Etienne had three first-half TDs for Clemson, which actually trailed 16-14 in the second quarter before forging a 31-16 advantage by halftime.

Tua Tagovailoa passed for 295 yards and two TD's but was intercepted twice, including a pick-six. "We didn't do the things we needed to do to execute and be successful in this game, and that's all it is".
