For the first time ever, Nick Saban lost a national title game.
Monday night, Alabama head coach Nick Saban lost his first national title game in six tries. Afterwards, speaking with ESPN’s Tom Rinaldi, he was gracious in defeat. Saban praised his team for all it accomplished in 2016, while also congratulating Dabo Swinney and Clemson on the victory.

Clemson’s victory brings its second national title – and first since 1981. It also avenged last year’s title game loss to the Crimson Tide.
