The College Football Championship 2016 is set to be played Monday by number one team Clemson and number two ranked Alabama. This year’s championship game is likely to be one to watch for several reasons, as it includes two out of the three finalists for the last Heisman Trophy, as well as many players of NFL caliber. The game is scheduled for Monday, at 5:30 PST at the University of Phoenix Stadium and airs on ESPN.

The two teams will play in the College Football Championship 2016 after they both dominated in their wins during the semifinals of the playoffs. The Tigers won over number four ranked Oklahoma at the Orange Bowl by a score of 37 to 17, and the Crimson Tide beat out the number three ranked team (Michigan State) at the Cotton Bowl by a score of 38 to 0.

Several factors coming into play

The game on Monday, which will be held in Glendale, Arizonapits the Clemson offense led by Deshaun Watsonagainst the Alabama defense of Nick Saban, whose latest game against Michigan State held them to 239 yards.One interesting factor is that Clemson’s coach, Dabo Swinney, played on the Tide’s 1992 national championship team.

Now, he's pitted against one of the best coaches of this generation, as Saban has won three national titles in six years at Alabama, and also has a BCS title at LSU.

Alabama favored to win Monday’s Championship game

Clemson, which has a season record of 14-0, and Alabama, which has a season record of 13-1, are playing each other for the first time since 2008. Alabama is the favorite by seven points, making Clemson the underdog for the second time in a row. While Swinney has never been to the playoffs before, his Clemson team has a chance to upset the heavily favored Alabama.
