Clemson keeps two SEC team streak intact by playing Alabama in CFP title game

For the last decade and a half, it has been said that if you want to prove yourself in college football, you should play the SEC. The Clemson Tigers have done just that and have had a pretty impressive streak the last decade.

Since 2006, the Tigers have played two SEC teams every season, whether in the regular season or bowl games, and they play the Alabama Crimson Tide for the national championship on January 11, meaning their streak will extend to a tenth year.

The Tigers also play Auburn and Texas A&M over the next four years, so their streak through at least the 2019 season as they always end the regular season against the South Carolina Gamecocks.

In those ten years, the Tigers have racked up an 8-11 record against the SEC. It’s not a very impressive record, but they are 14-0 and a win in two weeks would give them their first national championship since 1981.
