Just like he did a year ago in the National Championship Game, Alabama tight end O.J. Howard made a huge play to score a touchdown against Clemson.
Near the end of the third quarter, up by three points, the Crimson Tide caught the Tigers napping on defense. Howard appeared to be the blocker on a screen but snuck behind the coverage, which bit hard on his feint.
68 yards later, he went untouched into the end zone.
