We’re down to two. And, boy, they both look im­pres­sive. Top-ranked Clem­son and No. 2 Alabama will face off in the desert for the na­tional cham­pi­onship af­ter dom­i­nat­ing wins in the Col­lege Foot­ball Play­off semi­fi­nals Thurs­day. The Tigers romped in the sec­ond half for a 37-17 win over No. 4 Ok­la­homa in the Or­ange Bowl, fol­lowed by an even more dom­i­nat­ing per­for­mance in which the Crim­son Tide thumped Michi­gan State 38-0 in the Cot­ton Bowl. The Jan. 11 ti­tle game in Glen­dale, Ari­zona, matches a high-scor­ing Clem­son of­fence led by quar­ter­back De­shaun Watson against Nick Sa­ban’s lat­est dom­i­nat­ing de­fence at Alabama, which lim­ited the Spar­tans to 239 yards.
