The game, which will kick off January 1 in the Mercedes Benz Superdome, will feature the No. 1 Clemson Tigers, who are the defending National Champions and the No. 4 Alabama Crimson Tide, who claimed the title in the 2015-16 season. Now that the college football playoff committee has spoken, Alabama will face off against Clemson for the third time in as many years.

"They weren't games they were playing for a National Championship, they were games they were just playing as a reward for having a good season, and I think that's going to be the difference in this game", he explained.

Alabama has an 8-7 record in the Sugar Bowl but has lost its last three appearances, falling to Utah 31-17 after the 2008 season, to Oklahoma 45-31 after the 2013 season and to Ohio State 42-35 after the 2014 season. If you going by if I guess we go ask any of the teams who would you rather not face an Arab rather you know I don't think people are looking forward facing Alabama at all.

At the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, Alabama opened as a 1-point favorite over the Tigers. As a result, the Sugar bowl against Clemson has the most expensive Sugar Bowl tickets in the nine years that TicketIQ has been tracking the ticket market. Ohio State finished the season 11-2 after beating No. 4 Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship game Saturday night.

In a surprising manner, the Crimson Tide entered into the college football playoffs by not winning the SEC division.

"This is really wonderful the way it has worked out", said Swinney. I told Deshaun wouldn't it be something if we came back here for the semifinals in a few months.

Then there's days like Sunday when Sugar Bowl executive director Paul Hoolihan, chief operating officer Jeff Hundley and every hotel and restaurant manager in the New Orleans area feels as if they all shared a multi-million dollar winning lottery ticket.

In addition to being the most expensive Sugar Bowl TicketIQ has ever tracked, it's also the most expensive non-championship game for Alabama. "Because when you have that much time to prepare with that coaching staff, there's usually not going to be a letdown".
