Alabama vs Clemson College Football Championship Live Thread

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Tonight the Crimson Tide goes for its fourth championship in seven years, and Clemson goes for its first since 1981.  They'll meet in the College Football Playoff Championship starting at 8:30 PM ET on ESPN.

It's unfortunately familiar territory for Tennessee fans:  do you want Alabama to win or lose with the title on the line?  A win would put the SEC back in victory lane and make the league a ridiculous 9-2 in the postseason this year.  On the other hand, watching Bama be disappointed isn't something some of us would particularly mind.  In our bowl pick 'em 66.2% are taking the Crimson Tide.

The difference for Tennessee this year?  I can type this sentence with a straight face:  I want Alabama to win because it would mean more if we beat them next year.

The final game of 2015 will pave the way for a new year and all the hype that will come with it in Knoxville.   If you're following along tonight we invite you to join us in the comments below.
