On New Year's Eve, the Alabama football team will take the field in the College Football Playoff semifinals with only two wins left to win the school's 16th national championship. 

The first team standing in the way of the Crimson Tide is Michigan State. The SEC and Big Ten champions square off in the Cotton Bowl at 7PM on ESPN with the winner moving on to Glendale for a chance to win it all.

Not that you needed any extra adrenaline for the start of the playoffs, but this hype video will get you set for Alabama's run at 16.
