Alabama surprises Clemson with onside kick that leads to TD

BY foxsports • January 11, 2016

Just when Clemson had all the momentum following a big stop in the red zone, Alabama used a surprise onside kick to steal a possession in national title game on Monday.

The Crimson Tide were forced to settle for a Adam Griffith field goal to tie the score at 24 with just over 10 minutes left in the fourth quarter, but then Alabama dialed this up:

Following the recovery, Alabama quarterback Jake Coker connected with tight end O.J. Howard for the go-ahead touchdown. It was the second time in the game the players teamed up for a score.

From there, Alabama would not give up the lead and went on to win 45-40.
