They’re at it again.

If this happens again next year, let’s just have Dabo and Nick fight at midfield.

After this one is over, there will only be two more college football games before The Long Winter begins. (You know what one is; the other is Saturday’s FCS Championship Game between James Madison Dukes and North Dakota State Bison.)

Allstate Sugar Bowl

(4) Alabama Crimson Tide (11-1) vs (1) Clemson Tigers (12-1)

7:45pm CT, ESPN

Why you should watch: Because while some people get tired of the same old teams winning all the time, this one is probably going to be a classic. Because it’s the rubber match between two teams which are meeting in the playoffs for the third straight year. Because, if you’re into schadenfreude, one of these two teams will not be playing in the national championship game for the first time in three years.

Most importantly, because you’re running out of college football and you’ve got nothing better to do tonight. (Don’t lie; you don’t.)
