The National Championship Trophy presented by Dr Pepper will be awarded on the field to the winner of the College Football Playoff National Championship Game on Jan. 11, 2016 in Glendale, Ariz.
The trophy is on a season long tour, visiting marquee games and public events nationwide. The trophy is making its way to the Notre Dame at Clemson game on Saturday night.
Handmade from 24k gold, bronze and stainless steel, the trophy is 26.5 inches tall.
The trophy is handcrafted by the master fine art foundry Polich Tallix in Rock Tavern, New York. Expert craftsmen worked three months to craft the trophy.
Every year, a new trophy will be made. Each winning school keeps The National Championship Trophy for permanent display on campus.
Dr Pepper has been a part of college football for more than 20 years.
