For the second straight year, Big Ten fans will sit at home and watch Alabama and Clemson battle it out for a national title.
So we want to know: Who are fans of Big Ten teams rooting for when they flip on ESPN on Monday night?
It might depend on who your favorite Big Ten team is.
Are Michigan State fans still mad about last season’s manhandling by Alabama in the College Football Playoff? And do they want to root against Nick Saban?
Will Penn State fans root for Alabama just so they don’t have to hear Pitt fans brag about how the Panthers were the only team to beat Clemson this season?
Do Michigan fans root for Clemson because the country’s top running back committed to the Tide instead of the Wolverines this weekend?
And what about Ohio State fans? On one hand, Buckeyes fans are still upset about the 31-0 drubbing Clemson handed their team on New Year’s Eve. But, if Alabama wins, that gives the Tide two College Football Playoff Championships to Ohio State’s one. There would be no dispute over the pre-eminent college football program for at least another year.
So please let us know, Big Ten faithful, who are you cheering for Monday night?
