What a game. What gutsy drives. What a legend Deshaun Watson will forever cement in Clemson lore.

After being down by double digits for much of the game, Dabo Swinney's Tigers made the plays they needed to precisely when they needed to before getting exactly what they needed to deliver Clemson its first national championship since 1981.

On the day legendary Clemson head coach Danny Ford was elected to the College Football Hall of Fame, it doesn't get better than No. 4 and company making good on all their potential and delivering a performance for the ages.

All In. Go Tigers.
