Clemson scores with one second left to dethrone Alabama

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Deshaun Watson, it seems, had grown weary of the background. No. 3 in the Heisman voting, 2015. No. 2 in the Heisman voting, 2016. No. 2 in the national championship playoffs, 2015. For most of Monday night’s game against favored Alabama, it seemed that Watson might finish short of the finish line again. Instead, he led Clemson on a 68-yard drive in the last 127 seconds, throwing a two-yard touchdown pass to Hunter Renfrow to pull out a 35-31 victory…

Future opponent Dabo Swinney says Dalvin Cook is the best

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney has voted, and he says that FSU’s Dalvin Cook is the best running back in the country. Swinney, of course, is a bit biased. He has a game coming up against FSU, and therefore, he’ll have to stop Cook. He does not have to worry about LSU’s Leonard Fournette, Ohio State’s Ezekial Elliott, Utah’s Devontae Booker or Stanford’s Chris McCaffrey. Swinney said that Cook “is the best running back in the country” while discussing the job…
