Clemson won a dramatic comeback 35-31 win on Monday night against Alabama to win their first National Championship since 1981.

However, Alabama defensive back Hootie Jones tried to take some shine off of the Clemson's win by saying in post game interviews that he thought the referees had a huge role in his team's loss.

"They were getting a lot of calls and we just felt like that the refs were against us [Alabama]. We felt like it [the win] was kinda just trying to be taken from us."
