[edited for 2016 championship]
The college football season has sadly come to an end. Last season was filled with excitement and hosted the first ever National College Football Championship. The Ohio State University and the University of Oregon battled it out for first place. Ohio took the win 42-20 (in 2015.) This year the 2016 NCAA Football Championship was Clemson vs. Alabama and Alabama won the game 45-40.
For those of you who live and breathe for football season, the season coming to an end can be a sad and confusing time. For the past few months you spent your weekends dedicated to college football. First you dress up in all the latest team gear and make sure you are looking your best to support your team. Then you prepare for the game starting hours before the kickoff by eating and drinking and then eating and drinking some more. It’s a tailgate party! During the game you cheer and laugh and chant and sometimes cry. After the game, win or lose, you celebrate your teams hard work with all your friends. The week moves on and you discuss the game with friends, watching highlights and replays, and begin to prepare for the next game ahead.
