Sugar Bowl Live Blog: Alabama vs. Clemson

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WBRC) - For the third time in three years, Alabama and Clemson will meet in the postseason.

If this year's Allstate Sugar Bowl is anything like their first two meetings, we're in store for another classic.

Alabama (11-1) squeaked into the playoffs as the fourth seed. As fate would have it, it's just as good as being the top-ranked team for them.

College Football Playoff Rules prevent the No. 1 Seed from being placed at a geographical disadvantage. With Clemson (12-1) as the top seed, Bama fans will have a shorter drive to New Orleans than Tigers fans.
