On Jan. 9 2016, Tampa hosted the national college playoff between the University of Alabama and Clemson University at the Raymond James Stadium. With almost 75,000 people who attended the game and over 25 million people watching from home, the game brought a lot of buzz to the Tampa Bay area. According to collegefootballplayoff.com the how the four teams are selected to play in the playoff games is “The selection committee ranks the teams based on the members’ evaluation of the teams’ performance on the field, using conference championships won, strength of schedule, head-to-head results, and comparison of results against common opponents to decide among teams that are comparable.” Once the four teams are selected, the teams play against each other in two semifinal matches in two of six bowls qualified for college championship games. This year the final four was Clemson University, the University of Alabama, the University of Washington, and Ohio State University.

The game started with Alabama leading but during the final quarter of the game Clemson pulled through by scoring 21 points and beating Alabama by 4 points.

“It happened, we lost, and I’ve moved on” senior Michael Amos who was cheering on Alabama at his house with excitement for most of the game.

Meanwhile on the Clemson side Elio Peguero who is a junior at Chamberlain was cheering on the Clemson Tigers due to feelings towards Alabama and the University of Florida Gators

“It was amazing, everybody was excited about the game, we all wanted Alabama to lose because we were all Gator fans and they eliminated us,” said Peguero

Through the weekend of the Championship game, Tampa also hosted a few college football events such as free concerts featuring musicians such as Usher and Flo-Rida at the AT&T Playoff Playlist Live! weekend concert event.

Also included in the weekend activities were a Media Day opened to the public at Amalie Arena. A summit for Tampa Bay teachers which was held at the Tampa Convention Center, the Taste of the Championship was held at the Florida Aquarium which was a food sampler for the food that is located in the two teams hometowns. During all of this, the Playoff Fan Central event was held at the Tampa Convention Center which is similar to the NFL Experience events held at Super Bowls.
