Alabama’s Jacob Coker passed for two touchdowns, as the No. 2 Crimson Tide (13-1) rolled past No. 3 Michigan State, 38-0, in the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic in Arlington, Texas, December 31. Coming into the game, Alabama leaned heavily on the ground game, but Coker threw the ball 30 times — with a completion rate of 83 percent. Heisman winner Derrick Henry also contributed two rushing touchdowns in the College Football Playoff semifinal game. Alabama’s stifling defense held Michigan State (12-2) to 239 yards of total offense. The shutout ended Michigan State’s incredible season as well as the Connor Cook era, which included a pair of Big Ten titles. The first half was closely played. With 25 seconds left in the half, Michigan State looked as though it might trim the deficit to 10-7. But Alabama cornerback Cyrus Jones intercepted a pass at the Alabama 12-yard line to preserve the shutout for the SEC champions. In addition to his interception, Jones made three tackles and returned five punts for 80 yards and a score. But Clemson made Alabama work for the championship trophy. With twelve seconds on the clock Dabo Swinney’s Tigers scored a touchdown, to make the score 45-40. Heisman winner Derrick Henry amassed 158 yards and three touchdowns on 36 carries for Alabama, while Clemson quarterback, Deshaun Watson, passed for a championship-record 405 yards and four touchdowns and added 73 rushing yards. Saban has now won five national titles and Alabama claimed its fourth since the 2009 season.
