CLEMSON , S.C. (AP) — Clemson is celebrating its second national football title in three seasons with a parade and rally before thousands of fans on a chilly, overcast morning. Spectators stood seven or eight deep along the route, with All-American defensive tackle Christian Wilkins displaying a victory

Students and fasn went wild on Monday night after Clemson Tigers beat number one ranked Alabama in the College Football playoff championship game.

The parade ended outside the stadium where the players line up to run down the hill before games.

Coach Dabo Swinney accepted the Cotton Bowl trophy and the national championship prize in a mostly full arena.

Wilkins, Clemson's heart and soul this season, rode with a box of doughnuts, throwing some to the crowd along the way. He and fellow All-American defensive lineman Clelin Ferrell were caught on the stadium video board taking victory cigars from wrappers and putting the unlit stogies to their mouths as they broke out in conspiratorial laughter.

Wilkins explained his tearful outburst on national TV following the 44-16 rout of Alabama on Monday night in Santa Clara, California.

"I'm not sorry I cried," Wilkins said. "I'm sorry I'm such an ugly crier."

Chocolate & Chilli flavoured doughnuts sounded iffy, particularly if you used so much hot sauce they were inedible, leaving customers spluttering Finally a ‘Best of British’ theme translated as doughnuts with strawberries and custard creams wedged on to the top of them.

Progress posts are submissions where majority of the information is just in the title . Three words my friend: doughnut bread pudding. I used to work at restaurant that would add pine nuts and a bourbon maple glaze. Cheers , just never thought I'd be celebrating with the surplus doughnuts at home!

The Tigers became the first major school to finish 15-0 since Penn in 1897 with its College Football Playoff game wins over Notre Dame (30-3 in the Cotton Bowl) and Alabama. The feat had Swinney and several of his players touting Clemson as the best team in college football history.

"I feel like it's not really up for debate," Ferrell said.

The Tigers will have some questions to answer before continuing that run. Ferrell was among four starting defensive underclassmen to declare for the NFL draft after the Tigers returned from California.

Tackle Dexter Lawrence along with linebacker Tre Lamar and championship defensive MVP in cornerback Trayvon Mullen also chose to give up their eligibility to turn pro. Barring any late NFL declarations, Clemson will have to replace at least seven starters on defense including their entire front four as Wilkins and defensive end Austin Bryant were seniors.

"We have some the best fans in the world," defensive tackle Albert Huggins said. "They're always there to support us."

Fans in the stadium cheered the replay of the championship game and roared as a retrospective of Swinney's 10 landmark years in charge flashed by.

"We've won two championships in three years," receiver Hunter Renfrow said. "Let's make it three in the last four."
