We're not going to sit here and say if Clemson goes up 14-0 at that juncture that we'd be looking back on a totally different game, and a totally different opponent for Alabama in Monday's national championship game.

But it was nonetheless a big moment. And, maybe, a fitting image for the tight ends not supplying the big-stage impact we might've forecast earlier in the season or before the season.

After a year of extraordinary attrition at receiver, the Tigers figure to be flush again at wideout in 2021. But the tight ends, led by Braden Galloway and Allen, figure to be really good too.

Braden Galloway will enter the 2021 season with 34 career receptions.  He could match that total next fall.
