How To Watch The 2018 Sugar Bowl Online Without Cable


Tigers. Crimson Tide. Part Three.

When: Jan. 1, 8:45 p.m. ET

Where: Mercedes-Benz Superdome, New Orleans, La.

Channel: ESPN

The rematch nearly every college football fan wanted graces the Sugar Bowl in the second semifinal of the College Football Playoff. No. 1 Clemson, coming off a dominant 38-3 ACC Championship win against Miami (FL), will go for two in a row against the No. 4 Alabama Crimson Tide.

Alabama failed to make the SEC Championship game after losing to arch-rival Auburn in the final week of the regular season, but the Tide still received a Playoff berth. Some felt Big 10 champion Ohio State deserved the nod for the final spot. But if these two teams produce a game anything like their last two meetings, those complaints will quickly be forgotten.

Players to watch


Clemson WR Hunter Renfrow

The Alabama defense will certainly be watching the junior wide out. Renfrow only has three touchdown catches this season, but he only posted two scores in 2015 regular season and four in 2016. Two years ago against the Tide, he hauled in 7 catches for 88 yards and two scores. And you probably remember what happened last year. Look for him to make a clutch play when it’s needed most.


Alabama QB Jalen Hurts

This selection carries even more weight when you consider Clemson’s fearsome defensive front. The Tigers boast the second-most sacks in college football this season, led by 6’4”, 300-pound defensive lineman Christian Wilkins. Hurts knows how to protect the football—he’s only thrown one interception this year. But will he be able to stay composed in the face of the Tiger defense? His experience in last year’s title game will surely help.
