Scottsdale resorts are booking up quickly for several exciting sports events taking place in January. Of course, one of the hottest tickets in town is the 2016 College Football Playoff National Championship Game. Whether you’re a Clemson University or University of Alabama fan—or just want to experience what should be an exciting match-up—call us today to book your room at The Scottsdale Resort.
The National Championship Game takes place next Monday, Jan. 11, at the University of Phoenix Stadium. In what is sure to be an event that will heat up Arizona’s glorious winter climate, top-ranked Clemson will take on No. 2 ranked Alabama. Both teams come into the game with exemplary records: Clemson is undefeated at 14-0; Alabama is 13-1. It will be a battle of offensive strategy led by quarterbacks Deshaun Watson (Clemson) and Jake Coker (Alabama).
To make the game an even bigger contest, there’s more than a title at stake for Clemson coach Dabo Swinney. Coach Swinney is an Alabama alumnus who played on Alabama’s 1992 championship football team. You can be sure that Alabama coach Nick Saban will want to shut down his worthy opponent. Just one more competitive element in this highly anticipated meeting.
