WATCH: Ben Boulware gets intimate with National Championship Trophy

Written by Jesse Reed

We’ve seen players in different sports who’ve won championships celebrate in many different ways throughout the years. Perhaps nobody has celebrated quite like Ben Boulware did after Clemson beat Alabama, 35-31, to win the CFP National Championship Game, however.

Jeez. Get a room, why don’t you?

Boulware, who’s been the emotional leader of the Tigers all year long, played a magnificent game for Clemson. He sniffed out screen passes with the instincts of a jungle cat hunting its prey, was all over the field and made one of the biggest hits of the night — a hit that resulted in a mouthpiece ejection (watch here).

After such a performance, we’ll cut Boulware some slack about french-kissing/licking the trophy, even if it did get a bit weird.
