It was tied for the second largest margin of victory ever by the Vols against an SEC opponent. Jordan Bowden (20), Admiral Schofield (18) and Grant Williams (18) combined to outscore the Bulldogs by themselves, while Kyle Alexander recorded his second double-double of the season with 12 points and a career-high 14 rebounds.

Missouri (9-3, 0-0 SEC) was one of four league teams to not open the conference slate Saturday. The Tigers enter Tuesday’s matchup riding a six-game winning streak after going undefeated during the month of December. MU boasts one of the best defenses in the SEC, ranking second with 63.2 points allowed per game.

While Mizzou doesn’t score a lot of points, the Tigers are very dangerous from beyond the arc, where they shoot a 39-percent clip to lead the conference.Tennessee trails the all-time series with Missouri, 6-7, dating to 1961. The Tigers have a 5-1 edge when the series is played in Columbia.

The Blue Devils cruised to an 87-68 home win against Clemson on Saturday night, and the Demon Deacons fell 92-79 to Georgia Tech on Saturday afternoon. Duke defeated Wake Forest in both meetings last season.

Top-ranked Duke ventures out of Raleigh-Durham for its first true road game of the season, but it will be a relatively short trip.The Blue Devils take on Wake Forest in Tuesday night’s game at Lawrence Joel Coliseum in Winston-Salem,

N.C.Duke coach Mike team carries a seven-game winning streak into the game, coming off a victory against Clemson in the Atlantic Coast Conference opener.

But league games on the road are often a different deal — which Nevada learned Saturday at New Mexico shortly after Kansas learned the same lesson at Iowa State.

Either way, Tennessee will enter Tuesday’s game at Missouri ranked No. 1 in the CBS Sports Top 25 And 1. If the Vols get caught there, Duke will replace them at the top provided the Blue Devils win at Wake Forest on Tuesday.

Clemson is eyeing its third championship and second in three seasons under coach Dabo Swinney. The Tigers lost a classic championship game to Alabama after the 2015 season before beating the Tide on a last-second touchdown for the 2016 crown.

The College Football Playoff and Bay Area host committee expect the average ticket price to remain on track with averages from the 2015 and 2016 national title games, but the “get-in” price for this year’s game is cheaper than ever before. Average ticket prices soared in 2017 and 2018 when fans of Clemson, Alabama and Georgia could drive from their home states to watch games in Tampa Bay, Florida (2017) and Atlanta, Georgia (2018).

Clemson’s offense will be led by freshman sensation Trevor Lawrence. Since earning the starting job, Lawrence has elevated the Tigers’ offensive productivity. In 10 starts, Lawrence has thrown for 2,333 yards and 18 touchdowns. During that time, the ACC Rookie of the Year has grown as a leader and as a quarterback by leaps and bounds.

Winning another crown Monday night against Clemson would lift the Crimson Tide even further above other college football dynasties and into the conversation about the best runs in all of college sports.

the third meeting with the national championship on the line, will be played Monday night at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California. Tide vs. Tigers might be getting old for some fans, but the latest chapter is a feature not a bug in the five-year-old playoff to Swinney.

Maybe if a bunch of gamers were settling the title on a computer screen, it would all make sense. But since this is an actual football game, contested by two teams from the opposite side of the country, it’s hard to understand why the powers-that-be decided on the Bay Area (technically, San Jose and Santa Clara) as an appropriate spot for the fifth edition of their championship extravaganza.

Swinney and Clemson have come closest to reaching the Alabama standard. A second national championship in three seasons would give Clemson three overall (1981, 2016) and put Swinney in prestigious company. Among the Hall of Fame coaches with two national championships are Bobby Bowden of Florida State and Joe Paterno of Penn State.

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.
