The perks of watching this year's national title game is that no hearts of Oregon fans shall be broken tonight. Here's everything you need to know on how to watch tonight's game.

The second annual College Football Playoff National Championship has arrived. If the other New Year's Six bowls were any indicators, either Clemson or Alabama should win this game by 50.

It's probably for the best that Oregon is not in this game, because playing a national championship game at University of Phoenix Stadium might still be too soon. It will always be too soon.

Here's everything you need to know on watching tonight's action in the desert. If the traditional broadcast isn't enough for you, I suggest ESPN's Megacast, featuring 14 different ways to watch the game. I'm personally a fan of the "Homer Broadcast" in which former Clemson quarterback Taj Boyd and former Alabama center Barrett Jones will watch the game together.
