Clemson is back on top of the college football world after hammering Alabama 44-16 on Monday night in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game.

Clemson head coach, Dabo Swinney earned is 55th win, leading the Tigers to be the first FBS team to go 15-0.

From there, though, he did get into explaining the basis of four-touchdowns confidence: "First and foremost, you don't make it about Alabama", said the 49-year-old native Alabamian who played walk-on receiver for Alabama.

The Clemson Tigers official account also could not resist a dig at the singer as it became clear they were heading for their second national championship in three years.

Lunar rover leaves first 'footprint' on Moon's far side
The Chinese National Space Administration's Chang'e 4 vehicle touched down on the moon's far side Thursday morning, AP reports. In Chinese folklore, Yutu is the white pet rabbit of Chang'e, the moon goddess who lent her name to the Chinese lunar mission.

One Alabama radio station got a little ahead of itself late Monday night. He built Clemson in Alabama's image, and now his team has emerged as the primary challenger for the crimson throne. Etienne scored a school-record 26 touchdowns and rushed for 1,658 yards as a sophomore while the 6-foot-4, 205-pound Ross had six catches for 153 yards with one touchdown versus the Tide to finish with 1,000 yards as a freshman.

The former Crimson Tide QB is no stranger to success on the field.

Alabama will be back, but Clemson will nearly certainly be there waiting for them.

Coach Nick Saban has led Alabama to five championships since he took over the program before 2007. With that, however, came the startling realization that a second superpower has emerged in college football, and the only thing that changed is that the "rest of ya'll" bus lost its flagship member.
