No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 Clemson began the season as the top two teams in the nation and will end it the same way. Will the season of chalk continue along that path with the Crimson Tide reigning once Monday night comes to a close, or will the Tigers win the 2019 College Football Playoff National Championship to pick up their second title in three years?

This marks the fourth-consecutive season the teams have met in the College Football Playoffs. The Alabama Crimson Tide beat the Clemson Tigers in the 2016 championship game following the 2015 season. Clemson beat Alabama in the 2017 final (following the 2016 season), and Alabama beat Clemson in the semifinal for the 2017 season.

Now, after both teams played most of the season as the top two squads, and both winning their semifinal bowl games, they meet again. No. 1 Alabama beat No. 4 Oklahoma, 45-34, in the Orange Bowl while No. 2 Clemson beat No. 3 Notre Dame, 30-3, in the Cotton Bowl.

Alabama (14-0) and Clemson (14-0) are as balanced as any two teams can get. They both have proven, young quarterbacks and top-notch defenses. They are battle-tested and now, thanks to LSU disposing of Central Florida, the only unranked FBS teams remaining.
